§ 40. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what notification is given to neighbouring farmers when an outbreak of fowl pest takes place.
§ Mr. John Hare
Poultry keepers within half a mile of the outbreak are 917 visited and the movement of poultry within that area is restricted for at least 28 days. Where there is considered to be a serious risk of spread, the restrictions may be applied to a wider area. Notice is then given through the Press and the B.B.C.
