HC Deb 11 April 1935 vol 300 c1345W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that cream is frequently removed from milk before pasteurisation by large processing organisations and an equivalent amount of sterile fat added in the form of powdered milk; whether this practice is approved by his advisers; and, if so, whether he will arrange for a practical test over an extended period of the effect on children of this de-natured beverage as well as of milk?


The answer to the first two parts of the question is in the negative, and the third part does not therefore arise. I may perhaps remind my hon. and gallant Friend that under the Milk and Dairies (Amendment) Act, l922, the sale as milk of any liquid in the making of which dried milk has been used is prohibited.
