HC Deb 15 March 1922 vol 151 cc2188-9

asked the Minister of Health what stops he proposes to take, in connection with the proposed milk legislation, to obtain the opinion of the whole of the distributing trade in the interest of clean milk, as a very large section in the retail trade have not been consulted; and, as they form the greater portion concerned, will they have an opportunity of stating their case before any further steps are taken?


I shall be glad to consider the views of any responsible organisations representing the retail trade. I gather that the particular organisation with which the hon. Member is connected is apprehensive that it is proposed to require compulsory bottling for all milk, and I am glad to have this opportunity of saying that I have never contemplated such a provision.
