HC Deb 19 December 1946 vol 431 cc2169-70
74. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Health what percentage of the milk supplied to mothers and children through the Maternity and Child Welfare Centres is from tuberculin tested cows or heat treated.

Mr. Bevan

The clinics usually provide only dried milk preparations which are adequately heat treated in the process of manufacture.

Mr. Hastings

May I take it that no non-heat treated milk is supplied to these clinics?

Mr. Bevan

I would hesitate to give a definite assurance, but I assume it is not.
