HC Deb 07 May 1924 vol 173 cc429-30
54. Mr. PERRY

asked the Minister of Health if he will consider the desirability of appointing a representative of the National Veterinary Medical Association of Great Britain and Ireland on the Joint Committee which has been set up to advise his Department and that of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries on matters concerning the production, handling, and distribution of milk and dairy produce, including questions relating to education and research, and any legislation, Orders, and Regulations which may be under consideration?


I have been asked to reply. The Committee is primarily a committee representative of various branches of the industry, and my right hon. Friend considers that if expert advice on veterinary questions either for the Committee, or for the Ministers concerned, is desired, it will be best obtained from the expert veterinary officers in this Department.
