§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, in view of recent scientific knowledge gained by his Department into the causes of illnesses and deaths in cattle caused by the disposal of chemical residues, when affected farms may be safely used again for all forms of agriculture.
§ Mr. Soames
It will be a little time before we know how soon the affected fields may be safely used again for all forms of agriculture. Regular water samples are being taken and advice will be given to the farmers as soon as possible.
