HC Deb 03 May 1911 vol 25 c434

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether the Board are satisfied that the experiments carried out at Killcoona, in Ireland, for the prevention of contagious abortion in cattle have solved the problem of checking and controlling the disease?


The experiments to which the hon. Member refers are only a very small part of the trials which the committee on epizootic abortion are having carried out. The results as a whole are not as yet ready for consideration, and it would therefore be premature to form any opinion. The committee hope to be in a position to make a report in a few months.
