Mr. BOTTOM LEY
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether his attention has been called to the adulteration of bread by means of the treatment of flour with acid phosphate of calcium, derived from the action of sulphuric acid on bones; and, if so, whether he will consider the desirableness of taking measures to stop the practice?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
My attention has been called to this matter, and some time ago I directed an inquiry to be made in regard to it. The Report on this inquiry is now in preparation.
