§ 33. Mr. ALFRED WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Agriculture how long the country has been free from foot-and-mouth disease; and how long it is since there has been a similar period of immunity?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Guinness)
Great Britain has been free from foot-and-mouth disease since 6th April, 1927, i.e., for 10 weeks. Such a prolonged period of immunity from the disease has not been enjoyed by this country since 1921, when the country was free from 12th August to 24th November.
