HC Deb 21 July 1970 vol 804 c63W
37. Mrs. Sally Oppenheim

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will introduce regulations to make it obligatory for most dairy products, particularly milk and creams, to be marked clearly with the date of packing.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

No. The general provisions of the Food and Drugs Act, 1955, protect the consumer from buying unsound or stale food including milk and dairy products.
