HC Deb 15 May 1968 vol 764 c243W
32. Mr. Tudor Watkins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, how many representations he has had as to the ineffectiveness of the sheep dips at present available because they afford little protection either against blow-fly or lice; what reply he has sent; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. John Mackie

The only representation received since the organochlorine dips were withdrawn from sale in January, 1966 related to complaints following the 1966 dipping season. From inquiries made it appeared that the difficulties were due to failure to carry out the manufacturers' directions and a proper dipping procedure.
