HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 cc955-6W
Colonel Carver

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the fact that at the outbreak of war the veterinary profession was placed in the Schedule of Reserved Occupations, he will take steps to ensure that this profession shall play a more important part in the interests of the nation by applying its science and art in greater measure to the preservation of health in livestock, with the particular object of ensuring the maximum production in this country of milk and meat?
