HC Deb 25 November 1948 vol 458 c132W
Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Health what happen to the horses, cows and sheep after they have been used for the manufacture and production of vaccines, sera, anti-toxins and similar materials, at the various premises licensed by his Department under the powers of the Therapeutic Substances Act, 1925; and, when the carcases are sold for food purposes whether animal or human, what steps are taken to secure that they are free from disease and are otherwise fit for use as food.

Mr. Bevan

My own powers extend only to the standards of the therapeutic products in these cases.
