HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c127W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Minister of Food whether he will give an estimate of the percentage of cow hides damaged by warble fly in the last year in the county of Gloucester.

Major Lloyd George

Figures for Gloucestershire are not separately available. During the year ended April, 1952, about 12½ per cent. of the cow hides from Ministry slaughterhouses in Gloucestershire and parts of Somerset and Wiltshire which are collected at Bristol Hide Market, were graded as warbled.
