HC Deb 29 October 1918 vol 110 c1310W

asked the Secretary for Scotland what steps the Board of Agriculture for Scotland have taken up to the present time for the investigation of the disease of louping-ill in sheep?


An investigation into diseases affecting sheep, including louping-ill, is at present proceeding at the Glasgow Veterinary College, and the relative expenditure is being met by the Board of Agriculture for Scotland from the Agriculture (Scotland) Fund. A similar investigation was begun at the Royal (Dick) College, Edinburgh, but has been suspended meantime, as those engaged in the research have been called up for service with the Army Veterinary Corps.
