HC Deb 22 November 1960 vol 630 c90W
Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many scientists are employed by him in studying the causes of foot-and-mouth disease in Scotland; and what is the annual cost.

Mr. Maclay

None. Foot-and-mouth disease is a problem affecting the whole country and research into it in Great Britain is carried out at one centre, the Foot-and-Mouth Disease Research Institute at Pirbright, Surrey.
