HC Deb 21 June 1934 vol 291 c541

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the claim of Mr. Edward R. Hewitt to have found a cure for furunculosis; and whether he will consider referring this claim to the Furunculosis Committee for immediate examination or otherwise investigating it so as to give him an authoritative report while the Diseases of Fish Bill is still before Parliament?


I have been asked to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Furunculosis Committee has been consulted on the subject, and as soon as their considered reply has been received my right hon. Friend will communicate with my hon and gallant Friend. It is, however, improbable that the results of any experiments would be available this summer.
