HC Deb 21 June 1897 vol 50 c437

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the Board of Agriculture would issue instructions relative to the treatment of pea thripp, or pea louse, which has recently appeared in the county of Essex?


We have not previously received any complaint as to damage done by the particular insect to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers, but inquiry shall at once be instituted with a view to see whether we can with advantage take any steps in the matter.
