HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 cc2062-3W

asked the Minister of Health what local authorities are now providing milk for mothers and young children?


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?


The answer to the first part of the question 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.
