HC Deb 07 March 1912 vol 35 c547

asked whether, in view of the reduced supply of competent veterinary surgeons and of the admitted need of further scientific research into the more serious animal diseases, it is proposed to make an additional Grant to the Royal Veterinary College in aid of its general expenses for the conduct of specialised research, or towards the provision of post-graduate courses for the benefit of students proposing to qualify as veterinary inspectors of local authorities?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Runciman)

The question is under consideration, and I have recently discussed it with a deputation of the governors of the college, who are now preparing detailed proposals on the subject. It is proposed, in any case, to make a Grant to the college to enable further research work to be carried on.
