§ 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?
§ Major BARNSTON
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.
