§ MR. COGAN
said, he rose to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether his attention has been drawn to a report that sheep have been recently landed in the North of Ireland from Scotland; if he has ascertained whether there is any truth in such report; and, have the Government taken any steps to punish this violation of the Law, and to prevent its recurrence?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. LAWSON)
said, in reply, that the transaction in question occurred in the month of January last, and that, so far as he knew, nothing of the kind had occurred since. The detailed correspondence on the subject would be laid upon the table, and orders had been given to the Coastguard and the constabulary which would prevent the repetition of such a proceeding.
