HC Deb 15 November 1934 vol 293 c2157W

asked the Minister of Health whether he will authorise his Department to prepare a table, giving in simple language the quantities of proteins, carbo-hydrates, and fats contained in each ounce of the principal foods of the poorer classes, with tables showing the quantities of these necessary for the daily rations according to the age, sex, and occupation of the consumers, and thus improve their diet and reduce its cost?


The information referred to in the first part of the question is available from several sources. Questions affecting nutrition are under regular investigation, and in connection with this I will bear in mind my hon. Friend's suggestion.
