HC Deb 13 March 1923 vol 161 cc1284-5

(by Private Notice) asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the provisions of the Milk (Special Designations) Order, 1922, and whether he is in a position to make any statement on the subject?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)

Yes, Sir. There are certain detailed provisions in this Order which appear to me to be capable of some amendment so far as I have bad time to go into the matter. I propose to consider the Order in detail as soon as possible and to reissue it with such amendments as appear to me to be desirable after consultation with all parties interested. My hon. Friend is aware that under the Act of 1922 the Order remains in force unless it is annulled in the manner prescribed by the Act. Any new Order must, of course, be laid before Parliament, and would equally be open for discussion and, if not agreed, to annulment by presentation of an address to His Majesty.
