HC Deb 08 December 1952 vol 509 c19
23. Dr. Broughton

asked the Minister of Food with which interested organisations he has held consultations as a part of the preparatory work for the forthcoming legislation to amend the Food and Drugs Acts.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Dr. Charles Hill)

I am arranging to place a list of the names of the organisations consulted in the Library of the House.

Dr. Broughton

Will the hon. Gentleman state how the proposals have been received by the organisations which he has consulted?

Dr. Hill

In general, the proposals have received approval, though I cannot deny that here and there views were expressed which were not accepted in the framing of the Bill.

Dr. Stross

Will the Parliamentary Secretary bear in mind that as this legislation is likely to meet with approval in all parts of the House, the Committee stage may well be taken upstairs?

Dr. Hill

I cannot add to the answer which I gave in the early hours of 28th November.
