§ 18. Mr. Champion
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will obtain information from the Victoria State Government upon the working of their Act of 1956, dealing with the control and treatment of foot rot in sheep, with a view to the possible introduction of a similar measure for England and Wales.
§ Mr. Godber
My right hon. Friend is aware of the legislation in force in Victoria, and of the action taken under it. Control methods in Australia are similar to our own; but, as the hon. Member will have understood from the reply given to him on 13th March, my right hon. Friend does not consider that legislative action is necessary in this country.
