§ 43. Lord SCONE
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will state the areas in which the disease of cattle known as nervous syndrome is prevalent; and what steps are being taken to ascertain the cause, nature, and cure of this disease?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I presume that the Noble Lord refers to the disease of dairy cows to which reference has been made recently in the Press. Attention has been directed to its existence in the districts around Lechlade and in Berkshire, but it is common in many parts of the country and abroad. As regards the second part of the question, this disease condition formed the subject of a question by the hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams) on 21st June, and I would refer the Noble Lord to the reply given thereto, of which I am sending him a copy.
