HC Deb 17 May 1847 vol 92 c950

wished to ask a question of the right hon. Gentleman below him, the Vice-President of the Board of Trade. It was reported that a considerable change was to take place, or had already taken place, with regard to the quarantine laws. He wished, therefore, to know if any new regulations were contemplated, and what they were?


said, that orders had been given that, with regard to vessels from Egypt and Syria, they were to be put under the same regulations as were applicable to vessels from Turkey, and they were to be admitted to free pratique provided they had clean bills of health, and were not laden with susceptible articles. There were further regulations under consideration.
