asked the Minister of Health what steps he takes to ensure that butter and other milk products imported into this country are produced under the same conditions as those imposed by t le Milk and Dairies Order?


I have no control over the conditions of production of butter and other milk products outside this country, but these products in common with other foods are subject to inspection both at the time of importation and when exposed for sale, and if they are unsound or in any way unfit for food, they are destroyed. I may perhaps add that in must of the countries from which dairy produce is exported on a large scale, there is strict Government control of the conditions of production.
