HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 cc256-7W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that the Regulations governing the importation of dried milk are being administered with sufficient stringency; and whether these Regulations make any provision for requiring disclosure to the purchaser of the amount of liquid milk represented by the dried product when reconstituted, in order to draw attention to the costliness of the manufactured article in comparison with the natural product?


I have no evidence that the Regulations referred to, which only came into force on 1st May last, are not being efficiently administered by the responsible authorities. It is required that each tin of dried milk shall bear a declaration of the equivalent amount of liquid milk contained.
