HC Deb 04 May 1939 vol 346 cc2062-3
53. Brigadier-General Clifton Brown

asked the Minister of Health why the regulation forbidding inoculation of cattle against abortion is maintained for a tuberculin-tested herd, in view of the fact that inoculation for the same purpose is allowed for attested herds; and that numerous county veterinary officers have advised that this regulation for tuberculin-tested herds be abolished?

Mr. Elliot

As at present advised, I am not satisfied that an amendment of the orders removing the restriction as regards tuberculin-tested milk would be justified, but in view of the representations which I have received I am considering the matter further in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries.

Brigadier-General Brown

Is my right hon. Friend aware that this regulation affects the interests of many people?
