HC Deb 09 December 1935 vol 307 c566W
Brigadier-General BROWN

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the recent outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease have now been checked; and what is the present position?


The outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease in the counties of Cheshire and East Sussex confirmed on the 26th November and 27th November respectively, have fortunately each been confined to the single case. If no further outbreaks occur it is proposed to reduce the areas under restrictions in those counties to one of five miles radius from the 11th December in the case of Cheshire and 12th December in the case of East Sussex, and to release the two areas altogether about a week later.
