HC Deb 14 March 1922 vol 151 c1976
100. Major KELLEY

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether any fresh outbreaks of foot and mouth disease have been reported in South Yorkshire during the past week; and when he expects to be able to declare that area free of the disease?


I have been asked to reply. One case of foot-and-mouth disease was reported to the Ministry during the week ended the 13th instant, inclusive, in that part of Yorkshire south of a line through Bradford, Leeds and Selby. Although the outlook has greatly improved in the district in question, I am not yet able to give any indication as to when the district may be regarded as free from disease.
