HC Deb 13 July 1925 vol 186 c880W

asked the Minister of Health if he has received a copy of the resolution passed at the eleventh annual conference of the National Association for the Prevention of Tuberculosis to the effect that a considerable proportion of tuberculosis in childhood is due to infection through the presence of tubercle bacilli in milk offered for human food, and urging His Majesty's Government to render effective the provisions of the Milk and Dairies Act; and whether he is prepared to act upon this suggestion?


My right hon. Friend has seen the resolutions referred to. The Milk and Dairies Act of 1915, which deals with this subject, will be brought into operation on the 1st September next.
