HC Deb 01 April 1943 vol 388 cc358-9W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Health whether he will take legislative' steps to ensure that local authorities are entitled to grant special compensation in cases of prolonged illness or of permanent-spinal or other bodily injuries in children traceable to the consumption of infected milk?

Mr. E. Brown

No, Sir. It would not in my view be reasonable to place on a local authority liability in respect of a disability for which they are not responsible.
