§ Mr. EVERARD
asked the Minister of Agriculture the number of cases of foot-and-mouth disease in the periods January to March, 1928, and July to September, 1928, in France, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, and Great Britain?
§ Mr. N. BUXTON
The following statement shows the number of outbreaks of foot-and-mouth disease in the undermentioned countries during the periods January to March, 1028, and July to September, 1928.
The Foot-and-Mouth Disease Research Committee, which was set up in 1924, has already published three progress reports. The last of these included sections which summarised the most recent discoveries relating to immunity and treatment. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of this Report.
