§ MR. DODSON
said, he would beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council, Whether there is any Act of Parliament or Order in Council which prescribes that no sheep, goats, swine, or horses shall be admitted to a Fair or Market without a licence, or removed from it without a pass, where such Fair or Market is one at which Cattle, as defined by the Order in Council of the 24th day of March, 1866, are not exposed for sale; and, whether local authorities have any 1623 power to require the use of such licences or passes for sheep, goats, swine, or horses in the case of Fairs or Markets at which Cattle are not exposed for sale; and, if so, what Act or Order in Council gives that power?
§ LORD ROBERT MONTAGU
Under section 3 of the Order in Council of November 7th, 1866, no "animal" can be admitted to a market without a store-stock licence, nor taken from it without a market pass; and "animal" is defined by the Order in Council of March 24th, 1864, to be "sheep, lambs, goats, and swine, as well as cattle." Yet sheep, lambs, goats, and swine may be sold in markets not licensed for the sale of cattie, in any county of England except Essex, and may be taken to and from each market without licence or pass.
§ MR. DODSON
asked, Whether there was any power on the part of any local authorities to insist on the use of a store-stock licence or other pass, if animals, other than cattle, were sent to a fair or market not licensed for the sale of cattle?
