HC Deb 20 May 1943 vol 389 c1251W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Health whether medical officers of health have authority to reject milk on sale in their areas which. by appropriate tests, is shown to contain pathogenic organisms which might be productive of disease to consumers?

Mr. E. Brown

Medical officers of health of local authorities have powers for stopping a supply of milk where they have evidence that the milk has caused infectious disease or that the milk has been infected with the causative organisms of such a disease. It is also an offence to sell the milk of a cow which has given tuberculous milk or is suffering from certain scheduled animal diseases.
