HC Deb 20 May 1954 vol 527 c137W
77. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Agriculture, in view of the recent losses by bloat among dairy cows grazing on ley pastures, if he will ask the Agricultural Research Council to give special attention to this problem and make a report.

Mr. Nugent

The Agricultural Research Council has already arranged to intensify research on bloat in collaboration with the veterinary and advisory services of my Department. My right hon. Friend will consider with the council the question of a report.
