HC Deb 29 June 1944 vol 401 cc817-8W
Captain Charles Wood

asked the Minister of Health what proportion of cases of tuberculosis is attributable to drinking the milk of tuberculous cows.

Mr. Willink

Exact information is not available, but it has been estimated that rather less than 2 per cent. of all cases of pulmonary tuberculosis and about 30 per cent. of all cases of non-pulmonary tuberculosis are attributable to the bovine type of infection.
