HC Deb 22 July 1931 vol 255 c1484
56. Mrs. MANNING

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that during the past month 5,000 pounds of unsound imported apples, pears and tomatoes, offered for sale for human consumption upon costermongers' stalls in the borough of Islington, have been examined, condemned and destroyed; and whether he is prepared to introduce such amending legislation to the law relating to unsound food as will protect the costermongers concerned by compensating them in such cases?


My right hon. Friend's attention has been drawn to the fact referred to by my hon. Friend, but he is afraid that he cannot undertake to introduce legislation on the lines suggested.
