HC Deb 07 December 1961 vol 650 c175W
30. Sir A. Hurd

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in which districts myxomatosis in virulent form has recently been effective in destroying rabbits.

Mr. Vane

Myxomatosis is reported to be active in all counties in England and Wales except Cornwall and Lincoln (Holland). Rather more than half the specimens of affected rabbits sent in to the Ministry for post-mortem examinations from various parts of the country had the virulent strain.
