HC Deb 12 May 1938 vol 335 cc1714-5
68. Mr. Liddall

asked the Minister of Health whether, for the guidance of the public, he will make an authoritative statement as to the nutritive value, or otherwise, of tinned cooked foods in view of the diverse views held by medical authorities on this subject?

Sir K. Wood

I am not in a position to make any detailed statement on the matter referred to. I may say, however, that the results of research already carried out and still in progress are such as to suggest that the nutritive value of tinned cooked foods is generally similar to that of the corresponding foods cooked in the ordinary way.
