Sir GILBERT PARKER
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Government will consider the advisability of altering the law relating to disinfectants so as to secure a standard which will adequately protect the public against spurious compounds which give a false sense of security?
§ Mr. BURNS
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. As I stated in reply to a somewhat similar question last Session, the standardisation of disinfectants is a subject of great difficulty, upon which expert opinion is divided. I do not think it would be practicable to deal with it at the present time.
