HC Deb 26 March 1964 vol 692 cc186-7W
Mr. Godman Irvine

asked the Lord President of the Council and Minister for Science what work on blue tongue is in hand, or proposed, at the Research Institute for Animal Virus Diseases at Pirbright, or elsewhere.

Mr. Hogg

No work on this disease is at present being undertaken in the country. The possibility of starting such work at Pirbright is under consideration; but it is too early to say what line of approach to the study of the disease (if any) will be followed.
