52. Lieut.-Commander Hutchison
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will make fowl pest a notifiable disease under the Diseases of Animals Acts.
§ Mr. T. Williams
Fowl pest is a notifiable disease under the Diseases of Animals Acts. The requirements about notification are being revised so that, in future poultry owners who suspect the existence of the disease amongst their birds will give notice to the police instead of to my Department's veterinary laboratory at Weybridge.
