HC Deb 07 June 1928 vol 218 cc324-5
27. Dr. DAVIES

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the medical officer of health or sanitary inspector of many local authorities do not appreciate the fact that they are entitled to procure samples of food and drugs under the Sale of Food and Drugs Acts for analysis and, if found to he adulterated, prosecute the offender, although these officers may not be the usual authority for the administration of these Acts in their area; and will he at some convenient time draw the attention of all local authorities to their powers in this respect?


I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind.
