§ Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what was the monthly uptake of each item of welfare 116W food in the city of Dundee immediately before the increased charges were imposed; what is the present uptake; and what action he proposes to increase the consumption of these welfare foods.
§ Mr. Maclay
In April, 1961, 7,236 bottles of orange juice, 1,410 bottles of cod liver oil and 684 packets of vitamin A and D tablets were issued in Dundee. In December, 1961, the most recent comparable period, 2,517 bottles of orange juice, 507 bottles of cod liver oil and 247 packets of vitamin A and D tablets were issued. While it does not follow that intake of vitamins is now inadequate new publicity material about their advantages at current prices is being provided for use by local authorities.
