§ 25. Brigadier - General CLIFTON BROWN
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to a, report of the Danish State dairies on the system of stassanisation of milk as a more thorough and economic way of milk treatment than pasteurisation; and whether he will have inquiry made into this treatment?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Hilton Young)
I am aware of the report referred to by my hon. and gallant Friend. Stassanisation is a continuous flow process for the heat treatment of milk, and I am advised that pasteurisation by the holding process efficiently operated gives a greater assurance of the complete destruction of pathogenic bacteria than continuous flow processes.
