HC Deb 25 January 1982 vol 16 c280W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Secretary of State for the Social Services what steps he has taken to give effect in the United Kingdom to the principles and aims of the World Health Organisation international code of marketing of breastmilk substitutes.

Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

The method by which the principles and aims of the code can best be applied in the United Kingdom is the subject of discussions presently taking place with representatives of the infant food industry. Following these discussions guidelines for use by the industry and by health workers will be the subject of consultation with interested parties.
