§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. LAWSON),
in reply, said, that already an Order in Council was in force in Ireland with respect to the cattle plague, and a Bill had also been prepared on the subject, and would be submitted to the House as soon as practicable.
wished to put a Question to the Home Secretary on a subject which had excited great alarm in the north of Ireland. He wished to know whether it was true that an Order in Council had been issued, or was about to be issued, for the admission of hides and skins of sheep and lambs into Ireland in a disinfected state?
§ SIR GEORGE GREY
replied that no such proposal had ever been made to him, or, so far as he was aware, to any Member of the Government.
