HC Deb 04 December 1947 vol 445 c559
34. Mr. Lambert

asked the Minister of Education the number of rural schools in Devonshire in which the children are supplied with heat-treated milk, untreated milk, and dried milk, respectively.

Mr. Tomlinson

The figures for which the hon. Member asks are not readily available at present owing to records being moved. I will send him the information as soon as possible.

Mr. Lambert

Is the Minister aware that there are a large number of rural schools in Devonshire getting dried milk, and can he say what steps he is taking to ensure supplies of liquid fresh milk?

Mr. Tomlinson

When I get the reports I will look into that matter and if the facts are as the hon. Member says I will see what can be done.
