HC Deb 01 December 1955 vol 546 cc246-7W
115. Mr. J. E. B. Hill

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will review the working of the present machinery and regulations for the notification and control of fowl pest to see whether improvements can be made.

Mr. Amory

The methods used to control outbreaks of fowl pest are kept under constant review in consultation with representatives of the poultry industry. I am anxious to improve them if it is practicable, and we are looking into the points raised by my hon. Friend in his recent letter to my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary.
