asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that large numbers of consumers of milk detest pasteurised milk; that millions of children in this country have been healthily reared on untreated milk; that there is a considerable amount of evidence available to show that the recent increase in tuberculosis has nothing whatever to do with the milk supply; and whether, in view of these facts he will ensure to all milk consumers who desire to have fresh untreated milk, satisfactory supplies of the milk of their choice?
