The Milk and Dairies Regulations 1949 No. 1588 came into force on the first day of October of this year. They are intended to ensure that the milk delivered to the consumer shall be in all respects satisfactory. The consumer being every man, woman and child in the kingdom. Supervision of the kind referred to or implied in these regulations is essential if the end aimed at is to be achieved. Hitherto legislation in this respect has been somewhat of the piecemeal variety. Now it is sought to bring into one comprehensive and far‐reaching scheme all the activities which relate to the production, preparation and delivery of milk. Under the term milk is included cream, butter, skimmed or separated milk, and so forth. To give full effect to the regulations three Ministries are concerned: the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, the Ministry of Health, and the Ministry of Food. They will work in collaboration with each other throughout the kingdom. They will form, in fact, one central controlling authority so far as the milk supply—using that term in the most general sense—is concerned.
