HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 c1042W
Dr. Morgan

asked the Minister of Health whether, havingregard to the occurrence of cases of trichiniasis recently in certain parts of Great Britain and the identification of pork and pork products as their cause, he will take steps to order the compulsory heating and cooking of all such products, especially those used in the making of sausages?

Mr. E. Brown

Investigations are at present in progress with regard to the occurrences in question. Publicity has been given to the matter by wireless and in the Press in which it has been pointed out that provided pig meat is thoroughly cooked, no risk will be run. In the circumstances I do not think that action on the lines suggested is necessary.
