§ Mr. LARDNER
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that cattle in the Argentine suffering from foot-and-mouth disease are killed and sent for consumption to these countries in a frozen condition; whether any risk attends the use of such meat by human beings; and will he state what information his Department have in reference to this matter?
§ Mr. RUNC1MAN
So far as the Board have been able to ascertain, there is no foundation for the suggestion made in the first part of the question, but they will be glad to consider any evidence to the contrary which the hon. Member is able to furnish. Inquiry is being made as to the possibility of disease being introduced by this means.
