HC Deb 16 February 1920 vol 125 c541W
1915. Mr. DAWES

asked the Minister of Health when the Milk and Dairies (Amendment) Act, 1915, will be brought into force; and, if any amendments of this Act are proposed, whether he will indicate the nature of such amendments?


It is proposed, before bringing the Milk and Dairies Act into force, to introduce proposals for legislation to provide for the licensing of milk-producers and dealers, for the definition and grading of milk and for empowering local authorities to undertake the supply and distribution of milk in their areas. Parliament will also be asked to grant powers to enable the price and distribution of milk and its use for manufacturing purposes to be controlled in an emergency. A Bill is in course of preparation.
