HC Deb 13 February 1967 vol 741 c32W
Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the estimated cost of compensation in a brucellosis slaughter scheme restricted to animals shown to be suffering from brucellosis and actually excreting brucellae in milk.

Mr. John Mackie

Information on which such an estimate could be made exists only in respect of dairy herds in 1960–61. It would be extremely difficult and of no practical value to collect the information for beef herds.
