HC Deb 16 February 1955 vol 537 cc66-7W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will include the County of Kent in the proposed free testing area for the eradication of tuberculosis of Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Berkshire, Surrey, and West Sussex.

Mr. Amory

I regret that Kent cannot yet be included among the counties, mentioned by my hon. Friend, which have achieved an appreciably higher level of voluntary attestation. I hope that greater progress in voluntary attestation in Kent will make it possible for the county to be made a free-testing area during the next four years.
