HC Deb 13 May 1976 vol 911 c228W
Mr. Adley

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what he estimates to be the cost of vaccinating all dogs and cats against rabies in the event of an outbreak; and if any contingency plans exist to do so.

Mr. Strang

In the event of an outbreak of rabies, compulsory vaccination in the infected area is one of the measures that would be adopted under our contingency plans, as appropriate. The cost would depend on the size of the area and the density of the domestic animal population.
