HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 c1369
37. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Food whether, in connection with the handling, distribution and storage of foodstuffs for sale to the public in shops, restaurants and cafes, he will confer with the Minister of Health with a view to giving guidance for the hygienic handling of all foodstuffs from producer to consumer.

Dr. Summerskill

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Members for East Harrow (Mr. Skinnard) and St. Marylebone (Sir W. Wakefield) on Monday, 24th January.

Mr. De la Bère

Is the right hon. Lady not aware that that reply did not satisfy them, and that it does not satisfy me; and could not she give a little more thought to this all-important matter.

Dr. Summerskill

I am always thinking about it.
