HC Deb 19 March 1928 vol 215 cc45-6W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that liver fluke, among sheep has been very prevalent in Wales during the present winter; and, seeing that it is agreed that the cure consists of dosage by carbon tetrachloride and land dressing with copper sulphate, whether these substances are obtainable by farmers from his Department at a subsidised price?


I am aware that liver fluke among sheep has been prevalent in Wales this winter. The reply to the last part of the question is in the negative. I am advised that carbon tetrachloride and copper sulphate are readily obtainable through the usual trade channels at reasonable prices.
