HC Deb 02 July 1869 vol 197 c1081

said, he wished to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether any steps have been taken to procure a Report by a competent Veterinary Surgeon on the Cattle Plague in Roumania, in accordance with a suggestion made by Her Majesty's Consul at Jassy in a Despatch dated January 1st, 1869?

MR. W. E. FORSTER, in reply, said, the Despatch referred to by the hon. Member was duly considered by his noble Friend the President of the Council; and, after having fully weighed the matter and the other information the Government possessed on the subject, he did not think it was a case in respect to which the Treasury should be asked to go to the expense of procuring a Report.
