asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has considered a letter in "The Farmer and Stockbreeder," of 20th April, a copy of which has been sent to him, describing the satisfactory results obtained at Pembury in Kent, in immunising a dairy herd against tuberculosis; and whether he will investigate the methods therein described?

The reply to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. With regard to the latter part, there is no scientific evidence that the method of treatment referred to has any value for immunisation against tuberculosis, but I shall be prepared to consider any such evidence that may be submitted.
