HC Deb 22 April 1948 vol 449 cc163-4W
83. Mr. Cooper

asked the Minister of Health, in view of the approaching Summer season and consequent considerable increase in the sale of ice-cream, which in many cases is of doubtful standards of purity, if he will take steps to introduce a licensing scheme or a scheme for the grading of ice-cream in a similar way to that which is done in other countries as a necessary public safeguard to ensure easily recognised standards of cleanliness in the preparation and the food content.

Mr. Bevan

No. A high degree of cleanliness is obtainable under existing Acts and regulations. I do not think it feasible to add to these requirements under present conditions.
