§ 19. Mr. P. Browne
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what progress has been made towards finding a vaccine to immunise cattle against Johne's disease which does not give a false tuberculin test reaction.
§ Mr. Browne
As the majority of this country is now designated an attested area, and as there are grave losses from Johne's disease every year, will my right hon. Friend consider allowing those farmers who wish to do so to have their cattle vaccinated in the areas which are now designated attested areas, possibly extending the attestation tests from a one-year to a two-year period?
