§ 77. Mr. A. V. ALEXANDER
asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to an advertisement appearing in a magazine called the "Milk Industry," published by the National Federation of Dairymen's Association, offering for sale materials and machinery for the manufacture of re-constituted milk, the sale of which is prohibited by the Milk and Dairies (Amendment) Act, 1922; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?
Yes, Sir. My attention has recently been drawn to this advertisement, and I am considering whether it is possible to take any effective action in the matter. But I would remind the hon. Member that the offence under Section 4 (2) of the Act of 1922 is to sell re-constituted milk "as" milk."
§ Mr. ALEXANDER
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that this is a direct incitement to milk traders to break the law?
