HC Deb 08 June 1964 vol 696 c15W
80. Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Minister of Health what steps he has taken to ensure that bone meal fertiliser is not a possible source of typhoid epidemics either through vegetables and animals or through persons handling it; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Barber

I am advised that no case of typhoid has ever been traced to bone meal fertiliser, and that no typhoid organisms have ever been found in it.
