§ 71. Mr. TOUCHE
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether the investigations of the Board, in so far as they have gone, have established the fact, or created a presumption, that certain types of bees are immune from the so called Isle of Wight disease and that others are specially subject to it; and can he say which kind of bees are so immune and which are considered most likely to be affected?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The Board's investigagations, so far as they have gone, suggest that no type of bees is immune from the Isle of Wight disease. I am aware that a contrary opinion has been expressed, but it does not appear to be based upon adequate scientific evidence.
