Mr. John Hall

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what percentage of cattle in Scotland was attested free from tuberculosis in 1929 and 1959, respectively; and what were the pulmonary and non-pulmonary tuberculosis notifications in those years, expressed as a percentage of the population.

Mr. Maclay

The Attested Herds Scheme came into operation in 1935. Substituting that year for 1929, the information sought is as follows:

1935 1959

Percentage of cattle population attested 0.27 100
Tuberculosis notifications per 100,000 population:
pulmonary 101 72
