§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, having regard to the epidemic of sore throat at Woking last autumn, and at Finchley early this year, attributable to milk taken from cows out of health, will he consider the expediency of taking such steps as may be necessary to insure the occasional examination by a veterinary 979 surgeon of all cows kept for the purposes of a public dairy.
THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. GRANT LAWSON,) Yorkshire, N.R., Thirsk
Legislation would be necessary to give effect to the hon. Member's proposal, and I have caused the suggestion to be noted. I could not, however, promise to introduce legislation on the subject during the present session.
