§ Mr. TURTON
asked the Minister of Agriculture in what countries, Dominions, or Colonies, the diseases of fowl plague and Newcastle disease have been known to exist during the last two years?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I regret that the information at my disposal does not enable me to give the details asked for. I understand, however, that Newcastle disease is widespread in the Far East, and fowl plague is known to be fairly widespread in the Near East. One or other of these diseases occurs also in other parts of the Continent of Europe. Neither disease has been diagnosed in this country since August, 1933.
