Oral Answers to Questions — Impure Milk, Newcastle-on-Tyne.

– in the House of Commons on 10th May 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. DOYLE:

39.

asked the Minister of Health whether ho has yet taken any, and, if so, what steps to deal with the question of the sale of impure milk in Newcastle-on-Tyne, wherein it is stated on official authority that in the analysis and bacteriological examination of samples recently taken approximately 50 per cent, showed really serious pollution; and whether this serious menace to the health of the citizens will receive immediate attention and drastic treatment?
