HC Deb 05 December 1967 vol 755 c263W
63. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why an official of the Inland Revenue at Whittington, Worcester, in an area infected by foot-and-mouth disease was allowed to call on farms in uninfected areas, leaving behind a buff form, size 4¾ inches by 3¾ inches, thus aiding the spread of the disease, notwithstanding efforts made by the farming community to contain the disease; and whether he will issue instructions to prohibit such behaviour by his officials in the future.

Mr. Diamond

In the time available, I have not been able to identify this call. I will look into it if the hon. Member will let me have further details. Instructions have already been given to Inland Revenue officers to avoid making such calls.
