asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that at Nine Ashes, Blackmore, Essex, a sow died in a field adjacent to the public highway; that this was reported to the proper authority immediately on Thursday, 10th July, but that no action was taken until Saturday, 12th July; that by this time the carcase had decomposed; and whether, in view of this serious menace to the health of the general public, he will take action to prevent such delay in dealing with similar cases?
