HL Deb 24 April 1996 vol 571 c100WA
Baroness Jeger

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will consider using the Narang Test, reported in The Times on 29th March, on all British cows to identify cows infected by bovine spongiform encephalopathy so that only those would need to be destroyed.

Lord Lucas

We have asked Dr. Narang for details of the urine test he claims to have developed to diagnose BSE in cattle in the field. So far he has failed to provide us with any details of his test for assessment; nor has he published details of it in an independent, peer-reviewed journal, me usual way to verify such tests.
