§ 18. Captain ELLISTON
asked the Minister of Agriculture what percentage of milch cows in the dairy herds of this country are infected with, tuberculosis; and how soon the present methods of veterinary supervision may be expected to ensure the eradication of this disease among cattle?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
There is no information available upon which to base a firm estimate giving the information required. The measures now in force are designed to remove animals in a stage of disease which renders them dangerous to public health and to other animals, and not primarily for the eradication of disease as such.
