HC Deb 14 May 1857 vol 145 c261

asked the Vice President of the Board of Trade whether Her Majesty's Government had received any communications relative to the murrain said to be raging among the cattle on the Continent; and whether he would lay such communications on the table of the House?


said, he had no objection to lay the communications which had been received on this subject on the table, but a report which had been made by Dr. Greenhough, under the directions of the Board of Trade, would in the course of a day or two be laid on the table; and as it would contain all the interesting information contained in these communications, perhaps the noble Lord would wait until he saw the Report. If however, on seeing it, the noble Lord was not satisfied, there would be no objection to the production of the original documents.
