§ The Minister of Food (Major Lloyd George)
This must depend in the first instance on the findings of the Food Standards Committee as and when it submits reports to me.
§ Mr. Dodds
Is not the right hon. and gallant Gentleman powerless to do very much unless and until the Food and Drugs Amendment Bill [Lords] becomes law?
§ Major Lloyd George
No. From time to time the Food Standards Committee submits reports to me. There is one coming forward shortly. Much can be done without the Bill's becoming law.
§ 48. Mr. Willey
asked the Minister of Food on what date the Report of the Food Standards Committee about lead contamination will be published.
§ Mr. Willey
In view of the very proper public interest in this matter and of the widespread production of iced lollies, which is causing some concern, will the 1362 right hon. and gallant Gentleman expedite action on this Report when he receives it?
