HEREFORDSHIRE AND WORCESTER- SHIRE HQP-GROWER Arsenic in Beer. f At a meeting of the Worcestershire and Here- fordshire Hop Growers' Association Committee at the Hop Market Hotel, Worcester, on Satur- day afternoon, Mr Boddington (the chairman) said they had seen reports in the press of persons being fined for supplying beer contaminated with arsenic. This was a very serious matter for the community, and also for them as growers of hops. The time was ripe for the association to press forward with the utmost vigour upon the Government their demand for legislation which would do away with the use of any sub- stitute in the brewing of beer. Mr Parry said it was the prevention of the use of chemicals that they were aiming at. They must draw the attention of the Government to the possibililty of injury to the public by the use of chemicals in beer. On the motion of Mr Parry the following resolution was adopted "This meeting of hop growers urgently requests the Government to pass the bill preventing the use of hop substi- tutes, and thus enable the public to procure wholesome beer. The meeting also draws the attention of the Government to a case at Handford, near Stoke-on-Trent, where a licensee has been recently convicted of selling beer con- taminated with arsenic which, it is stated by the brewers, arose from the use of chemicals."
