asked the Minister of Health what local authorities are now providing milk for mothers and young children?
§ Sir K. WOOD
According to the information in my right hon. Friend's Department, this service is now provided by 426 local authorities in England and Wales. I will send the hon. Member a list of them.
§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Health if there are any boroughs or counties that have made no provision for maternity and child welfare: and, if so, would he give the names of the boroughs and counties, and say what action he proposes to take for their introduction?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
The answer to the first part of the question 2063W is that provision for maternity and child welfare may be made either by the county council or by the local sanitary authority, and such provision has been made for every sanitary district in England and Wales. The last part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
