HC Deb 30 November 1925 vol 188 c1824
21. Captain BOWYER

asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the Minister of Agriculture, what steps he is taking to test M. Spahlinger's reputed cure for bovine and human tuberculosis, or whether the Ministry is already satisfied as to efficacy of M Spahlinger's sera?


The Ministry has not itself made any test of M. Spahlinger's serum, or of any other specific of which the basis is kept secret and not submitted to scientific inquiry. It understands, however, that an investigation into bovine tuberculosis is being undertaken by a Committee representative of certain agricultural and professional interests in Cheshire, where tests are being conducted with the co-operation of Mr. Spahlinger.

Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE

Are the Government taking steps to see that this very important experiment is being properly watched by those who are qualified to give an opinion with regard to its results?


I will make inquiries.
