HC Deb 31 July 1912 vol 41 cc2080-1W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that bee disease is prevalent in many parts of the country and threatens ruin to the industry of bee-keeping in numerous districts; whether he is aware that legislation is urgently needed in order that regulations may be framed and enforced for the purpose of checking this highly infectious disease; and whether he can promise such legislation in the near future?


The answer to each part of the question is in the affirmative. A Bill dealing with the subject was introduced in this House last Friday.
