HC Deb 19 March 1952 vol 497 cc213-4W
4. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Education what guidance is given to schools or to local education authorities whether a preference should be given for the provision of tubercular-tested or of pasteurised milk for their children.

Miss Horsbrugh

The local medical officer of health is responsible for approving the source and quality of the milk supplied for drinking in schools. It is the policy of my right hon. and gallant Friend the Minister of Food and myself to try to ensure that milk supplied to the schools is either pasteurised or tuberculin tested.
