Pasteurised Milk.

Oral Answers to Questions — Public Health. – in the House of Commons on 21st March 1935.

Alert me about debates like this

Lieut.-Colonel Sir ARNOLD WILSON (for Brigadier-General CLIFTON BROWN):


asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the Cattle Diseases Committee reported in 1934 that the frequent infection by tubercle bacilli of milk sold from licensed and unlicensed pasteurisation and other heat-treatment plants constituted a disturbing situation; and what, if any, steps have been taken since the issue of the report to draw the attention of medical officers to the contents of this report?

I have been asked to reply. I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given to him on this subject on 14th March. The circular which my right hon. Friend is sending to local authorities will draw attention to the report of the Cattle Diseases Committee and copies of the circular will be sent to medical officers of health.

Will my hon. and gallant Friend ask the Minister to give the circular publicity in this House?

I will certainly convey that suggestion to my right hon. Friend.
