HC Deb 16 December 1912 vol 45 c1077

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he proposes to allocate further moneys derived from the Development Fund or otherwise to the purposes of research in connection with the contagious diseases of animals, and, if so, of what amount; and whether, in promoting such research, he will take into account the expressed willingness of the agricultural departments of several Continental countries to co-operate in such work?


The Board hope shortly to submit to the Development Commissioners proposals for the establishment of a Be search Institution for the investigation of diseases of animals. It would be premature for me to make any statement as to the details of the proposals until the Development Commissioners have had an opportunity of considering them.
