HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 c931
42. Sir T. Moore

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the present losses caused by the various diseases of dairy cattle in this country, he will arrange for a regular routine examination of all dairy cows in order to facilitate the early detection of mastitis and to allow the earliest possible introduction of measures for its treatment and control?

Mr. Hudson

As indicated in the reply given on 4th February to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Howdenshire (Colonel Carver), consultations are taking place with a view to the adoption of the most suitable methods of controlling diseases of dairy stock, including mastitis.
