§ 33. Mr. Llewellyn
asked the Minister of Food how much of the surplus stores of orange juice held by his Department which contain lead is being sold for human consumption; and whether he will make a statement concerning this disposal.
All the surplus orange juice concentrate held by the Department is being offered for sale through the trade for food manufacturing purposes. The juice has been examined by the Government Chemist and by independent public analysts, and the results do not indicate a lead content any higher than the general limit for foods recommended by the Food Standards Committee.
