§ Mr. Campbell-Savours
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will list the precise locations of the three outbreaks of paramyxo virus in Cornwall; how many birds were involved; and if he will place in the Library notification of any further outbreak reported providing similar details.
§ Mrs. Fenner
The cases of paramyxo virus in racing pigeons diagnosed in the St. Austell and Redruth areas involve nearly 250 birds. A number of other possible outbreaks in these areas and elsewhere are under investigation. Details of premises affected by any animal, poultry or bird disease are not published.
For similar reasons I cannot undertake to place in the Library the details which the hon. Member has requested for any other outbreak but I shall certainly keep the House fully informed of developments in the disease situation.
