HC Deb 02 December 1953 vol 521 cc145-6W
Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Minister of Agriculture what sample tests are being taken in Welsh counties to ascertain the incidence of myxomatosis among rabbits.

Sir T. Dugdale

None. There is at present no evidence of myxomatosis among rabbits in Wales, but the Ministry's veterinary officers and county agricultural executive committees' staffs are on the alert. A suspected case was re- ported from Wales, but veterinary investigation showed that the rabbits had not died from myxomatosis.
