§ Mr. Gareth Wardell
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will consider encouraging a vaccination programme to be undertaken in the event of further outbreaks of Newcastle disease.
§ Mrs. Fenner
No outbreaks of Newcastle disease have been confirmed in this country since 1978. As regards the use of vaccine in relation to paramyxovirus in racing pigeons, I refer the hon. Member to my reply today to the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Campbell-Savours).
