HC Deb 19 December 1952 vol 509 c280W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, since anthrax has increased in this country over the years in direct proportion to the amount of imports of feedingstuffs and bones, if he will require that these are all properly sterilised before being admitted to this country.

Sir T. Dugdale

It would not be practicable to require all such substances to be sterilised before importation, but my Department is considering what further steps can be taken to prevent infected material getting into feedingstuffs.
