HC Deb 01 April 1912 vol 36 c862

asked whether the right hon. Gentleman had received representations from any traders in the cream trade with respect to the proposed regulation which seeks to lay down a standard of fat in preserved cream; whether protests have also been made as to the compulsion to be imposed upon traders to describe cream as preserved cream boracised on every bill, invoice, card, or other announcement; if so, will he, having regard to the fact that the public purchasing cream in future may imagine that such cream under the new title may be adulterated or poisonous, and to the consequent damage to the trade arising there-from, give favourable consideration to the traders' views before issuing the regulations?


I have received representations and protests of the nature indicated and shall give them full consideration.
