51. Mr. Crouch

asked the Minister of Agriculture what research is taking place with regard to diseases of ducks; and whether any new methods of control have been discovered

Mr. T. Williams

In addition to the other research work being done on poultry diseases special attention is being given to infections with the Salmonella group of micro-organisms, some of which are of special importance in ducks. Methods of diagnosis and control are under active study and I am pleased to say that progress is being made.
