HC Deb 03 December 1953 vol 521 cc1291-2
15. Mr. Crouch

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can make a statement on recent research into braxey disease of sheep.

Sir T. Dugdale

Very full information about this disease and its prevention is already available and I do not know of any recent research. I am sending my hon. Friend a leaflet about the disease, issued by my Department.

Mr. Crouch

Can my right hon. Friend say whether this is an infectious or contagious disease, or one which suddenly occurs?

Sir T. Dugdale

I am advised that this disease is neither infectious nor contagious.
