§ MR. BENTINCK (for Sir ROBERT BUXTON)
asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether, as there appears no prospect of the cattle affected with pleuro-pneumonia in Ireland being slaughtered and compensated for, the 614 Lord President will rescind the Order in Council which enforces such slaughter in Great Britain?
§ VISCOUNT SANDON
The Order in Council, Sir, referred to by my hon. Friend was issued in consequence of the recommendations of the Select Committee which sat last Session. The Lord President is of opinion that that Order has not been in operation for a sufficiently long period to show whether it can be rescinded with safety.
