HC Deb 03 May 1934 vol 289 c473
38. Major MILLS

asked the Minister of Agriculture if the Ministry's experimental fishery station at Alresford, in Hampshire, is still in existence; and, if so, what additional expenditure would be required to enable the naturalist in charge to examine samples of fish suspected of being infected by furunculosis?
