HC Deb 19 February 1958 vol 582 c157W
Colonel Glyn

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to state the number of markets which have been closed in the last three years as a result of outbreaks of foot and mouth disease attributed to infection brought from South America, and the greatest number of weeks for which any market has been so closed during the last three years.

Mr. John Hare

I regret that the information for which my hon. and gallant Friend asks is not available. I am, however, sending him some particulars of infected area restrictions during the period he mentions.
