HC Deb 24 June 1935 vol 303 cc816-7W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the loss to farmers and members of the meat and leather trades in this country caused by the action of the warble fly on cattle; and, if so, what action he proposes to take with the object of the extermination of the warble fly from this country?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to-day to questions on this subject by my hon. Friend the Member for East Fife (Mr. H. Stewart), the Member for the St. Rollox Division of Glasgow (Mr. Leonard) and my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen, North (Mr. Burnett).
