HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 c1488W

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that certain inspectors of the Ministry of Health are prohibiting pickled herrings being sold in certain shops in the East End of London; and will he make inquiries into the matter?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, I am given to understand that the shops in question are milk shops, and the action referred to is apparently action taken under Section 2 of the Milk and Dairies (Amendment) Act, 1922, by the responsible local authority. An appeal lies to a Court of Summary Jurisdiction.
