§ Sir JOHN LONSDALE
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, having regard to the practice which prevails of adulterating flour by the addition of various deleterious substances in the process of manufacture, he will direct the special attention of the responsible authorities to the provisions of Section 3 of the Sale of Food and Drugs Act, 1875, with a view to the prosecution of offenders?
§ Mr. BURNS
The question of adulteration of flour is now under consideration, and I am not at present in a position to state what steps will be taken. The publication of the answer which was given to the hon. Member's question on the 18th instant will have drawn attention to the Section referred to.
§ Sir J. LONSDALE
The right hon. Gentleman has had the matter under consideration fully twelve months—
§ Mr. SPEAKER
No doubt the right hon. Gentleman has given the best answer he can. The hon. Member may not be satisfied, but then he cannot always expect to be satisfied.
