HC Deb 05 February 1976 vol 904 cc730-1W
Mrs. Bain

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services how many research programmes have been carried out in the last three years by paediatricians in the United Kingdom into the effects of National Dried Milk on infants.

Mr. Meacher

I am not aware of any research concerned solely with the effects of National Dried Milk. Relevant studies have been of the effects of unmodified cows' milk preparations, of which National Dried Milk is one, compared with those of modified milks or of breast feeding.
