§ 52. Mr. HURD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he will invite the Empire Marketing Board to follow up the tests of fresh milk in schools by shaking grants for cooking classes in elementary and secondary schools to carry out tests of the higher nutritive and cooking values of home-killed as compared with imported chilled meat?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. Lunn)
I do not feel that I should be justified iii inviting the Empire Marketing Board to undertake the tests proposed.
§ 44. Mr. HURD
asked the Minister of Health the results of recent cooking tests in public institutions of British home-killed and imported chilled beef, with a view especially to ascertaining the validity of the claim of some local authorities that the lesser wastage in the cooking of home-killed meat makes it a more economical purchase?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Miss Lawrence)
I apologise for not being present earlier, when this question was first called. My right hon. Friend cannot trace the receipt in the Department of particulars of the results of any such tests as are referred to by the hon. Member.
§ Miss LAWRENCE
No; if I recollect aright, I said that I should be very glad to pay attention to any further particulars that the hon. Member gave me, and I have not yet received the information.
