§ Sir JOHN JARDINE
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether the question of the award of compensation for the destruction of the carcases of animals affected with tuberculosis had yet been decided?
§ The PRESIDENT of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Burns)
The matter would require legislation, and I am not at present in a position to announce any legislation on the subject.
§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
Is it not a fact that this disease would long ago have been scheduled under the Contagious Diseases Act if it were not for the reluctance of the local authorities to allow additional burdens to be thrown upon the ratepayers?
