Food Shops and Food Stalls.
All food shops, stalls, barrows and the Fulham
Market have been kept under careful supervision during
the year and two of the Sanitary Inspectors have been
on special duty, as in previous years, every Friday and
Saturday night with regard to these food premises.
Slaughterhouses.—There are two licensed slaughterhouses
in the Borough situated at:—
No. 611, Fulham Road, and
No. 640, King's-Road.
During the year Inspector Manning has made 187
visits of inspection to these premises.
The slaughterhouses, lairs and utensils have been
kept in a cleanly condition.
Milk.—Of 513 samples examined, 8, or 1.5 per
cent., were adulterated, as compared with 0.57 per
cent. in 1926, 1.0 per cent. in 1925, and 1.6 per cent.
Details of legal proceedings instituted by the Council will be found on page 77.

During the year, eleven applications were received
for permission to sell bottled sterilised milk from premises
which were not suitable for registration as dairies.
The necessary registrations were granted in every case,
provided the milk was not to be supplied otherwise
than in the closed and unopened receptacles in which
it was delivered to the premises.
