Mr. T. MORRIS
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that tinned cream, labelled "thick cream" but containing only about 20 per cent. of cream, is being sold in different parts of the country; and whether this practice is approved by his Department?
Sir H. YOUNG
I am aware that tinned cream containing about 20 per cent. of milk fat is sometimes labelled as thick cream. The question whether this is a false description is one for the consideration of the courts in the event of proceedings being taken under the Food and Drugs (Adulteration) Act. The matter is not one in which I am empowered to take action.
