HC Deb 11 July 1922 vol 156 c1075W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will insert provisions in the new Milk Bill to fix a standard for condensed milk, so that the public may be protected from both Foreign and British machine-skimmed condensed milk and from condensed milk which contains so small a proportion of butter-fat as to be of little nutritive value?


I have been asked to reply. I do not propose to insert any provision in the Milk Bill to deal with condensed milk, but I am considering what can be done under existing powers to protect the public against any misconceptions as to the nature of the article sold as condensed milk.
