HC Deb 11 March 1937 vol 321 c1334
57. Mr. Grant-Ferris

asked the Minister of Health whether, in respect to the admission of cattle from the Channel Islands direct to dairy herds in this country licensed to produce tuberculin-tested milk, he will modify the conditions of such admission so that they will conform with the conditions of the Minister of Agriculture in respect to the admission of similar animals to herds registered under the Tuberculosis (Attested Herds) Scheme?

Sir K. Wood

The Attested Herds Scheme is administerd directly by the Minister of Agriculture who can thus control the movements of animals but such control is not possible under the Milk (Special Designations) Order. I consider therefore, that it is not desirable in the latter case to vary the present conditions.
