HC Deb 10 April 1952 vol 498 c271W
68. Mr. J. Hynd

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the practice of sweet factories employing outworkers to wrap sweets in their homes where there is no control over their handling; and what steps he will take to protect the public from this practice.

Major Lloyd George

Local authorities already have powers under the Food and Drugs Act to make by-laws requiring sanitary and clean conditions of handling sweets to be observed.
