HC Deb 18 July 1910 vol 19 c1057W

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?


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.
