HC Deb 03 June 1907 vol 175 cc254-5
Mr. WATT (Glasgow, College)

To ask the Secretary for Scotland if he will state, for the years 1900 to 1906 inclusive, the number of cows examined by veterinary surgeons under Article 3 of the Dairies, Cowsheds, and Milkshops Order, 1899, the number of cows certified under the said Article to be affected with tuberculosis of the udder, and the manner

1900 1901 1902 1903 1904 1905
Number of cows examined 20,076 22,604 26,382 29,870 29,305 38,309
Number of cows affected with tuberculosis of the udder 54 46 40 40 37 43

The figures, however, are only approximate, and do not represent the exact number of cows certified as affected by tuberculosis of the udder, which I am unable to obtain. I have no information as to how the cows certified were disposed of.
