HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 cc1247-8
67. Mr. McKinlay

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that the Food and Drugs (Adulteration) Act, 1928, is being violated in Glasgow and elsewhere in Scotland, by the sale of meat products in cans and other containers, which are being sold under a warranty as to the contents which is false; that the warranty is issued by wholesalers outwith the jurisdiction of the Scottish Courts, and is not given by the producers; and what steps he proposes to take to protect retailers and consumers alike?

Major Lloyd George

If, as I presume, my hon. Friend is referring to the case about which he asked me a Question on 8th October, my reply must be that my Noble Friend is in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland with regard to the action to be taken in such cases and that in due course I will communicate their decision to my hon. Friend.
