HC Deb 11 April 1867 vol 186 c1479

said, he rose to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether the importation of sheep into Ireland from Scotland might again be permitted, as the cattle disease has now for some time disappeared in Scotland?


said, he thought the time had now come when it might be possible to consider the question as to whether the restrictions that had existed so long in regard to sheep in the United Kingdom might not, to a certain extent, be relaxed. He had directed certain inquiries to be made in the matter, and he hoped in a few days to acquaint his hon. and gallant Friend with the result.
