HC Deb 09 December 1935 vol 307 c543

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether it is his intention to take action to prevent the ravages of the warble fly; and, if so, whether he can give this House an indication of the nature of his proposals?


The Governments of the United Kingdom, of Northern Ireland and of the Irish Free State have agreed in principle to the desirability of the issue of Orders requiring the treatment of cattle infested with the warble fly maggot periodically during the months of March to June in each year by methods to be prescribed in the Orders. I am now considering the terms of the Order for Great Britain.
