HC Deb 17 August 1893 vol 16 cc426-7

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture if he can state the history of the animal which is supposed to have infected a herd of cattle at Cambuslang with pleuro-pneumonia?


The inquiries we have instituted go to show that the animal in question was taken from Dublin to Glasgow on the 22nd Juno last, and thence to Cambuslang. She was sent to Dundee on the 3rd July and remained there until she was slaughtered on the 21st July, and it was then that the fact that she was affected with pleuropneumonia was discovered. A large number of animals have been slaughtered, both in Ireland and Scotland, with which it is known that she had been in contact; but we have discovered nothing to show where the disease was contracted.
