HC Deb 17 June 1913 vol 54 c196

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture if he has received any Report from the Committee that went to India to investigate the cause and treatment of foot-and-mouth disease in cattle; and, if so, will he state the result?

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

The investigation in India has been completed, but the drafting of a detailed Report has been postponed pending the return of Sir Stewart Stockman who has been seriously ill and is not yet, I regret to say, able to attend to business.
