HC Deb 17 July 1947 vol 440 c67W
Mr. Byers

asked the Minister of Health when he proposes to bring into operation the Food and Drugs (Milk and Dairies) Act.

Mr. Bevan

My right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and I have come to the conclusion with regret that technical difficulties make it impracticable to bring the Act into operation this year. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a circular in which local Authorities were recently informed of this decision.
