HC Deb 04 February 1937 vol 319 c1770
61. Mr. Lambert

asked the Minister of Health whether the milk sold in London, except for pasteurisation, is sold containing the natural amount of butter fat or whether it is watered down to comply with the legal limit?

Sir K. Wood

The addition of water to milk intended for sale is unlawful, and I find nothing in the recent reports of public analysts in London to show that the practice mentioned in the question is resorted to. If my right hon. Friend has any particular instance in mind and will furnish me with the necessary information, I will have inquiries made.
