HC Deb 15 May 1952 vol 500 c140W
63. Mr. R. Robinson

asked the Minister of Agriculture what reports he has received from the Agricultural Research Council with regard to the experiments recently conducted in the use of antibiotics in animal feedingstuffs; and, in particular, if these experiments confirm the American successes in fattening pigs and poultry in this manner.

Sir T. Dugdale

Friend It is hoped that results from which valid conclusions can be drawn will be available before the end of the year
