HC Deb 02 June 1927 vol 207 c563W

asked the Minister of Health whether any standard test of purity and quality is applied to the importations of condensed milk into this country, especially from Switzerland; and, if so, what it is and how is it carried out?


Samples of condensed milk are examined by the Government chemist and by public analysts to verify that it complies with the standard of composition laid down in the Public Health (Condensed Milk) Regulations, and is other wise free from adulteration. The tests applied are matters for the discretion of the officers concerned, no standard tests being prescribed. I am not aware that any special attention is given to imports from Switzerland.
