HC Deb 25 February 1924 vol 170 c56W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is prepared to provide for regular inspections of all dairy cattle, and the elimination, either by slaughter or by branding and segregation, of any animal found to be suffering from tuberculosis?


The Ministry has from time to time given careful consideration to the end which the hon. Member has in view and it is at present exploring the question as to whether it is practicable to put into operation at the present time the Tuberculosis Order of 1914, which was suspended owing to the War and has for its object the elimination of cows suffering from tuberculosis in an advanced form. I am sending a copy of this Order to the hon. Member.
