§ Lieut.-Colonel RAW
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether, in view of the dangerous contamination of milk by living germs of tuberculosis, thereby causing a large amount of that disease in children, he will consider the urgent necessity for compulsory pasteurisation of cow's milk before being sold to the consumer?
§ Mr. PRATT
The date at which the Milk and Dairies (Consolidation) Act, 1915, should be brought into operation, and the Regulations to be made there under, and the important matter referred to by the hon. Member as to the desirability of pasteurisation, when properly defined, in certain cases is receiving careful consideration.
