asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of the concern among neighbouring local authorities at the state of affairs revealed by the recent investigations into contaminated food at Burnley; and whether it is his intention to introduce amending legislation to the Food and Drugs Act, 1938, in accordance with the proposals submitted by the Burnley County Borough Council.
