HC Deb 25 February 1932 vol 262 c545
53. Mr. HURD

asked the Minister of Health what percentage of livers taken from Irish Free State cattle at Birkenhead is condemned in whole or in part, respectively, upon slaughter, and the figures for Canadian cattle; also what percentage of Irish Free State and Canadian cattle, respectively, when killed at Birkenhead, are found to be suffering from tuberculosis?


No separate figures are available in respect of the Trish Free State. I am informed that the percentages of livers wholly condemned in 1931 were 19.5 in Irish cattle and 7.3 in Canadian cattle. The figures for cattle affected with tuberculosis were 5 per cent. in the case of Irish cattle and 0.6 per cent. in the case of Canadian cattle.
