HC Deb 05 August 1943 vol 391 cc2469-70W
Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the representation made by the Carmarthenshire county council urging the introduction of a scheme for the supply of free milk to persons suffering from silicosis; and what reply he has made to the proposal?

Miss Horsbrugh

Yes, Sir. My right hon. Friend has informed the county council, who proposed to undertake the supply, that he knows of no powers under which they could make such a provision. My right hon. Friend has, however, referred the general question to the Food Rationing (Special Diets) Advisory Committee appointed by the Medical Research Council.
