HC Deb 24 February 1936 vol 309 cc49-50W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether all milk bottles bear the reputed stamp of half-pint or one pint; and, if not, will he take steps to have all bottles stamped?


It has hitherto been considered impracticable by reason of the cost and the consequent increase in the price of milk to verify and stamp individual milk bottles. What alternative safeguards to the consumer are desirable and possible is now being considered by the Board of Trade in consultation with representatives of local authorities, dairymen and bottle manufacturers.
