HC Deb 30 July 1912 vol 41 c1845

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he proposes to introduce this Session a Bill to prevent the sale as bread, without any qualifying prefix, of a product of wheat flour which has been artificially bleached or adulterated or from which nutritious ingredients of the wheat grain have been mechanically abstracted, or whether he intends otherwise shortly to take legislative or administrative action in consequence of the published opinions of the scientific experts of his Department upon the adulteration or sophistication of flour, rice, and other natural products of common consumption?


I may refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave on the 23rd instant to a question by the hon. Member for Devizes. The precise scope of the Bill has not yet been definitely settled.
