HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 cc75-6W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether his attention has been drawn to the advertisement on page 9 of the Daily Telegraph for Saturday, 27th March, 1971, paid for by the National Dairy Council, regarding the method of claiming for free milk; and whether he will initiate a national Press campaign based on this advertisement and have leaflets issued throughout his Department's offices and post offices throughout the country.

Mr. Alison

I have seen the advertisement. The National Dairy Council campaign and the Government's campaign to encourage take-up of benefits, including free milk and relief from National Health Service charges, both aim at promoting the take-up of free milk. The booklet and form mentioned in the advertisement are issued by my Department. The Government campaign begins in a week's time. Millions of leaflets will be available through post offices, Social Security offices and child health clinics.
