As from 1st June 1961 the price of orange juice has been increased
and a charge has been made for cod liver oil and vitamin tablets which
hitherto were issued to beneficiaries free of charge. It has been noted
that there has been a decline in the number of issues of these items
since these charges came into operation, but this has been largely offset
by the take-up of other vitamin preparations. From enquiries made there
appears to be no evidence of any vitamin deficiency in Ilford children.
