That this House congratulates Yorkshire farmer Lester Peel for being awarded the J Parlour and Son Perpetual Challenge Trophy for the Champion Suffolk sheep at this year's North Yorkshire County Show; notes that Mr Peel has been a sheep farmer for about 40 years and is owner of award-winning pedigree sheep; regrets to hear that it has been a particularly difficult 12 months for sheep farmers with Mr Peel losing more than 20 lambs to the Schmallenberg virus and also having problems with worm infestations amongst the flock; observes that he decided to turn to homeopathy and has since seen positive results from the homeopathic remedies he has included with the feed for his flock; and calls on the Government to carry out a study into the level of homeopathic usage by farmers, what results have been achieved and what potential homeopathy offers for prevention of disease amongst livestock.
