§ 93. Mr. CADOGAN
asked the Minister of Health whether it is his intention to publish the evidence upon which the recommendations made by the Departmental Committee dealing with the use of preservatives in food were based; and whether he is prepared to set up an Advisory Committee upon which trade representatives having practical experience should be asked to serve?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
In accordance with present practice it is not proposed to publish the evidence given before the Departments Committee on Preservatives in Food. My right hon. Friend does not contemplate setting up a Standing Advisory Committee on food questions, but he has published the draft Regulations in order that the views of the trades and others concerned might be received and considered by him. I may add that a number of such representations have already been received.
