I do not think it would be legal proof of what a churn contained, to tap it. That point can be got over only by weighing. I have a good many other points, but I will not put them now. I do not want, when the Bill gets into Committee, to obstruct on any of these questions, but I think this is a matter of first-class importance from the point of view of the public health, and I am sure that in Committee my right hon. Friend will be prepared to consider the points I have raised, and others that will be raised in the course- of the Debate. If I have seemed to be a critic, I am a friendly critic. I thank the right hon. Gentleman for bringing in the Bill, and I think he is on the lines of least resistance, and that on the whole we have got to go slowly, but we need a Bill on the basis of which we can start a real campaign for the consumption of more milk, and better milk.
