§ MR. DUFFY (Galway, S.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he can state how many cases of rabies occurred in Ireland since January, 1901, to present date, whether those cases were authenticated by qualified veterinary surgeons, or whether they were reported upon by members of the constabulary force.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Two cases of rabies occurred in Ireland since January last, one in February and the other in April. They were notified by the constabulary, and the existence of rabies in each case was authenticated by qualified veterinary surgeons, and by independent examination conducted by the Department of Agriculture.
