§ Viscount Lambton
asked the Minister of Health whether, when it was known 54W that Mr. R. Brewis had contracted foot-and-mouth disease, he advised Dr. Armstrong of Rothbury, who had treated Mr. Brewis, that he should isolate himself from his other patients until the infectious period came to an end; and how long a man is infectious after he has contracted foot-and-mouth disease.
§ Mr. K. Robinson
No. Foot-and-mouth disease in man is exceedingly rare and there is insufficient information to permit any firm conclusion on the duration of infectiousness.
