Poultry Mortality Committee: New Chairman


    ARISING out of a recommendation of the Eggs and Poultry Reorganisation Commission for England and Wales, a Committee was set up some months ago by the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries “to consider the present methods of supply and distribution of hatching eggs, day old chicks, and breeding stock, both generally and with particular reference to the reduction of poultry mortality; and to make recommendations for the improvement of those methods”. The Committee's proceedings were however suspended by the illness, recently followed by death, of its chairman, the late Mr. F. N. Blundell. Sir Duncan Watson has now been appointed chairman of the Committee. The secretary of the Committee is Mr. V. E. Wilkins, of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries.
