asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been called to the fact that condensed milk produced in the United States of America does not ordinarily conform to the standard of quality stipulated in the conditions of Admiralty contracts; and, if so, whether in any forthcoming legislation to deal with milk supplies he will lay down conditions, for the protection of consumers of condensed milk generally, similar to those imposed by the Admiralty to safeguard the health of our seamen?

My right hon. Friend is aware that much of the condensed milk imported into this country from the United States of America is not concentrated to the extent specified in Admiralty contracts. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to a question by the hon. Member for the Henley Division on the 1st May.
