asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will institute a screening procedure to discover the incidence of hydatid disease in each area of Wales.

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will arrange for intensive studies to be carried out in areas of Wales where the incidence of hydatid is known to be high so as to establish accurately all those suffering from it.
