HC Deb 20 June 1938 vol 337 cc691-2
40. Sir Joseph Leech

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the results of the experiments, carried out under the auspices of his Department, of feeding calves on pasteurised milk, as compared with raw milk, show which of the two types of milk can be regarded as being without doubt the more desirable for human consumption?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The present position of experimental work on the feeding of pasteurised milk to cows is set out in a report on dairy research recently published by the Agricultural Research Council, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.

Mr. Macquisten

Why is it called raw milk? It is fresh milk; calves have been fed for countless generations on it, and they still survive.
