§ 41. Mr. A. Henderson
asked the Minister of Health what further steps 29 he is proposing to take to increase the consumption of concentrated orange juice as a welfare food.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Health (Miss Edith Pitt)
None, Sir; but current measures will continue.
§ Mr. Henderson
In view of the nutritional value of this welfare food, may we take it that the Minister will endeavour to obtain greater supplies from next year's crop in Jamaica and the other West Indian territories that produce citrus products?
§ Commander Kerans
Should we not be running down the stocks of these welfare foods and not increasing them, because orange juice, and so on, should be given only to those who really need it?
§ Mr. K. Robinson
Can the hon. Lady say what success her publicity measures have been having? Has the fall in consumption continued or has the trend been reversed in recent months?
