HC Deb 03 March 1965 vol 707 c268W
Mr. Charles Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what research projects on sheep are being undertaken.

Mr. Crosland

It is not possible to list, within the limits of a Parliamentary reply, all the research that is at present being undertaken on sheep, but I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the "Index of Agricultural Research, 1964", in which he will find details of all We work in progress under the auspices of the Agricultural Research Council. Certain research work on disease problems is carried out by the Veterinary Service of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. Experimental work on sheep is also conducted at the Experimental Husbandry Farms of the National Agricultural Advisory Service and I am also sending the hon. Member a complete list of such work in progress in 1964. In addition a number of private breeders are conducting crossbreeding experiments. Important work is being undertaken in universities and agricultural colleges, supported by their own funds.
