§ 14 and 15. Mr. J. Howard
asked the Minister of Health (1) how many cases of brucellosis occurred during the last convenient period of twelve months; and
(2) what steps he is taking to safeguard the public against the danger of contracting brucellosis as a result of drinking milk which has not been heat-treated.
§ Mr. Howard
In view of the number of milk-vending machines and advertisements advising people to drink another 891 pint of milk a day, will my hon. Friend take steps to make it quite clear to the public that tuberculin-tested raw milk is not completely safe and that it is not necessarily free from the brucella germ? Will she substitute an advertisement saying, "Better not drink a pint of milk a day unless it has been heat-treated"?
