asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in view of the fact that many children do not take milk at school because of the fear of infection, he will impress upon local education authorities that, where possible, the milk should be given each child in a separate bottle and, where this is not practicable, proper care should be taken to see that the drinking vessel used by one child is thoroughly washed before it is used by another?

I am sending the hon. Member copies of two circulars in which the Board have impressed upon local education authorities the desirability of providing school milk in one-third pint bottles and the importance of securing the utmost cleanliness in drinking vessels and other utensils.
