HC Deb 28 July 1936 vol 315 cc1335-6W

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the increasing use in this country of tinned food, he will cause an authoritative inquiry to be made into the dietetic value of each particular tinned product as compared with the fresh article?


A considerable amount of research on this subject has already been carried out and more is in progress. Having regard to the results already obtained and to the claims of other branches of research, my right hon. Friend would not feel justified in initiating such a comprehensive inquiry as that suggested by my hon. Friend.
