dc.description.abstract1. The Prevalence of tuberculosis in childhood is extremely great. 2. There is evidence to prove that our milk supply is in part responsible. 3. The recent advances in the control of tuberculosis have not benefited the infant population as much as the adult owing to this fact of an infected milk supply. 4. The Prevalence of tuberculosis among milk cows is almost incredible in amount. 5. Milk as delivered to the consumer is infected to an enormous extent. 6. Existing farming conditions favour the continuance of tuberculosis amongst cattle. 7. The legal provisions for controlling tuberculosis amongst cattle are inadequate. 8. The legal provisions are administered by the wrong authorities. 9. Cooperation between Health Authority and farmer is the thing to aim at. 10. This can be brought about by the Danish system of control of tuberculous animals, reasonable assistance to the farmer and fair compensation. 11. The total elimination of bovine tuberculosis should be the aim of the. Government, brought about slowly but with care to prevent human infection and with the minimum of loss to the country by amending the existing Orders, by encouraging milk certification and by introducing the methods which I have already enumerated which are being used with success in other countries.en
