Joseph Adrien Henri Lambert

Mr. Adrien Lambert (Bellechasse):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Agriculture.
According to a news item published in the newspaper La Presse today, it would seem that the incidence of salmonellosis in the Levis-Bellechasse area is such as to constitute a threat of epidemic, and 150 to 300 dairy herds representing 15,000 dairy cows could be affected. Can the minister tell the House whether he has been advised of the matter and, if so, what steps have been taken by his department to prevent such an epidemic?
