Mr. Pavitt

asked the Minister of Health (1) what instructions he has issued to local authorities on the action to be taken for the storage, transport and distribution of processed milk if an emergency arises consequent upon the United States nuclear tests at Christmas Island;

(2) what instructions have been issued to distributors of processed milk for children under one year old in the event of an emergency arising from the United States tests to enable them to differentiate between those given full cream, half cream, or evaporated milk;

(3) if bottle fed babies will have preference over breast fed babies for full cream National Dried Milk in the event of an emergency arising from the fall-out from nuclear tests in Christmas Island.

Mr. Powell

No fresh instructions are necessary. In case of need, arrangements would follow those made last autumn.
