HC Deb 24 July 1866 vol 184 c1384

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If the slaughtering powers of the Cattle Diseases Act will be continued after the 3rd of August; and if any modification of the Orders in Council restricting the movement and the trade in cattle is contemplated, in consequence of the decline of the Cattle Plague; and, if he can inform the House how the Cattle Diseases Act is being carried out in Cheshire, since by the last Return it appears that eighteen out of the twenty-one cases of "recoveries" are reported from the county of Chester?


said, in reply to the first part of the Question, that no modification was at present contemplated, and with regard to the question relating to Cheshire he should have to bring in on Thursday a Bill amending the Cattle Plague Act of which he intended to give notice to-night, and he would then state the views of the Government.
