HC Deb 27 July 1944 vol 402 cc886-7
33. Captain Sir George Elliston

asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider extending the powers of local authorities over milk found to be infected with certain specified diseases by making such powers applicable to all diseases communicable to man by milk.

Mr. Willink

I shall take an opportunity of reconsidering this matter in connection with revision of the Milk and Dairies Regulations. There are, however, practical difficulties in extending the existing powers to all diseases.

Sir G. Elliston

Mr. Willink

That is a different question.
