HC Deb 03 July 1925 vol 185 c2954W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, in view of the recent outbreaks of grass sickness amongst horses in agricultural districts in Scotland, and the heavy losses sustained by farmers thereby, any steps are being taken to check the diseease; and if research work is being undertaken to combat its ravages?


The seriousness of this disease is fully recognised, and it has been the subject of investigation for some time. Research work in connection with it is being continued by the Animal Diseases Research Association. A reference to the progress of the investigation is given on page 42 of the Report of the Board of Agriculture for Scotland for 1924.
