§ 32. Mr. Porritt
asked the Minister of Agriculture how many cases of foot-and-mouth disease in the county of Lancaster have been notified in the years 1936, 1937 and 1938, respectively?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
No case of foot-and-mouth disease has occurred in the county of Lancaster in the years 1936, 1937 and 1938 to date.
§ Mr. Porritt
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there is a widespread belief in Lancashire that the immunity of the county from this disease is due to the use of lime on the pastures, and will he, therefore, have the matter investigated?
§ Mr. Morrison
I was not aware of the belief, but I hope the recent subsidy given to lime will fortify it.
