10. Mr. W. H. K. Baker
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is satisfied with current progress made with the brucellosis eradication scheme; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
Good progress is being made. Two-thirds of eligible herds have joined the voluntary schemes and about half of our cattle are already accredited. We have been able to start with compulsory eradication over a wide area of the country and we have announced plans for the progressive extension of this area.
