Food Hygiene (10 Feb 1958)

Sir Ian Fraser: No one but a fool would expect shrimps to be eaten months later unless they had been kept in deep-freeze. We do not eat kippers months later. Housewives are not such fools. Everybody knows that we cannot keep shrimps for months, any more than kippers.

Food Hygiene (10 Feb 1958)

Sir Ian Fraser: I am not the hon. Member for Onions, so I cannot say. Morecambe shrimps are so excellent that they hardly need advertising.

Members will not object to this personal revelation—that only two nights ago my wife and I ate half a dozen oysters which we bought in one of the most...

Food Hygiene (10 Feb 1958)

Sir Ian Fraser: I gave that as an illustration of the medical story which I am trying to get the hon. Member for Greenock to understand. The idea of food poisoning is very much exaggerated. The hon. Member said that there had been thousands more cases this year than a year ago. Perhaps that is because there are so many more clerks in local authority offices, or so many more doctors paid by the State, to...

Food Hygiene (10 Feb 1958)

Sir Ian Fraser: I do not think so; in my view, we are fussing too much about a little thing. I said so before, and I repeat it. Since I do not wish to speak after my hon.

Food Hygiene (10 Feb 1958)

Sir Ian Fraser: A letter has gone out from the Minister saying that the Ministry of Health desires to review the matter in two years time. I do not object to that. Let the Ministry review it and inspect the records of inspecting officers and local authorities. They will not find the position as bad as hon. Members are making it out to be. They will find it is a very reasonable, decent, clean trade. What I...

Food Hygiene (10 Feb 1958)

Sir Ian Fraser: I thought I heard my hon. Friend say that his right hon. Friend, meaning the Minister, had accepted the view that outworking must be brought to an end. Did he say that? [HON. MEMBERS: "Yes".] If his right hon. Friend has accepted that, I am hound to say that I could not possibly accept it, and I should have to test the feeling of the House in two years' time, or ten years' time, whenever it...

Will he bear in mind the fact that any help that he can give those industries will help him to earn more dollars next year?

I shall be very brief. Coniston Water is a beautiful lake in the north-west of England, and by it is the village of Coniston in which about 4,000 people live. Foxfield is a station on the main railway line...
