HC Deb 13 February 1920 vol 125 c394W

asked the Minister of Health when it is proposed to introduce a Bill giving powers to local authorities to trade in milk; and whether similar powers will be given to local authorities; to trade in coal?


A Bill to amend the Milk and Dairies (Consolidation) Act, 1915, which will deal, among other things, with powers affecting the supply and distribution of milk by local authorities, is in course of preparation. With regard to the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade.
