HC Deb 21 July 1953 vol 46 c218W
Mr. Kirkwood

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to trace the source of the suspected outbreak of Newcastle disease among racing pigeons in Cornwall.

Mr. Jopling

There have been no reports of outbreaks of Newcastle disease. As regards tracing paramyxovirus virus in racing pigeons, I refer the hon. Member to the reply that my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary gave yesterday to my hon. Friend the Member for Rugby and Kenilworth (Mr. Pawsey).
