HC Deb 24 October 1912 vol 42 c2403W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture if he is aware that the discoveries of Messrs. Twort and Ingram were fully recognised by the veterinary bacteriologists to the Danish Government in March, 1912; and why, in spite of the fact that use was being made by the English Government investigators of Messrs. Twort and Ingram's methods, their work was ignored in an account of Johne's Disease published in the Journal of the Board in September last?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In reply to the second part, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to his question on this subject yesterday. The article in the Board's Journal was of a very general character, and it was not possible to refer specifically to the contributions of individual workers to our knowledge of the disease.
