HC Deb 22 April 1955 vol 540 cc23-4W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will approve the employment of available veterinary surgeons in private practice when there are not enough Government veterinary surgeons available to make the necessary examinations for attested cattle.

Mr. Amory

This is already the practice, and about 1,750 private veterinary surgeons are employed on this work by my Department.
