§ Sir C. MORRISON-BELL
asked the Minister of Health the amount of condensed skimmed milk coming into this country for each of the last 12 months; and whether his departmental advisers are satisfied that the warnings issued to the public on the low food quality of this product are sufficiently understood by purchasers?
I understand that the amounts of condensed machine skimmed milk imported into this country during each of the last 12 months were as follow:—
1927. Cwts. March 166,828 April 159,539 May 182,434 June 165,142 July 142,964 August 161,656 September 151,943 October 160,560 November 152,791 December 136,980
1928 Cwts. January 152,040 February 123,449
As regards the second part of the question, I am not aware of any reason why the warning "Unfit for babies" should not be understood by all purchasers, and I may say that, in connection with last year's amending Regulations, I introduced a new method of printing the words with a view to increasing the prominence of this warning.
