§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, in view of the fact that calves used in the Army and Navy Vaccine Institute for the production of lymph are slaughtered and subjected to a post-mortem examination in each case before the carcasses are sold to the public, will he consider the expedience of adopting a similar course with calves used for the production of lymph at the National Vaccine Institution, London, before the carcasses are sold for human consumption.
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to his Question of the 30th May† last, in which I stated that the carcasses are thoroughly examined by a veterinary surgeon before being allowed to be sold for food.
