§ Sir R. Gower
asked the Minister of Health the number of local authorities who are supplying powdered milk for babies and very young children instead of liquid milk; and whether, having regard to Circular 1840, they will be allowed to continue doing so?
§ Mr. Elliot
According to the latest information in my possession, 60 welfare authorities in England and Wales supply dried milk as part of their maternity and child welfare arrangements, and 313 supply both dried and liquid milk. I have no information indicating the kind of milk supplied to the special groups mentioned. The reply to the second part of the Question is in the affirmative.
