HC Deb 09 December 1964 vol 703 c191W
Mr. Brewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proportion of calves are vaccinated against brucellosis; and what action his department will take to increase the proportion.

Mr. Ross

During the year ended 30th September, 1964, some 126,600 calves were vaccinated under the free calf vaccination service. This represents just over 41 per cent. of female calves under one year old. No figures are available for private vaccinations. Every effort has been made to publicise the scheme and to bring home to farmers the desirability of taking advantage of it and these efforts will be continued.
