HC Deb 07 December 1966 vol 737 c304W
70. Mr. Wall

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to what degree the salmon disease affecting Irish rivers has now spread to England and Scotland; and what steps are being taken to prevent a further spread to other areas.

Mr. Hoy

Salmon disease is now occurring in 17 rivers in North-West England and South-West Scotland.

With regard to measures to counteract its spread, I would refer to the Reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Lewes (Sir T. Beamish) on 23rd November.—[Vol. 736, c. 317.]
