HC Deb 28 March 1878 vol 239 c117

asked the Vice President of the Privy Council, Whether he has any knowledge of a Statutory enactment, already approved by the Federal Council of the German Empire, and now submitted for confirmation to the German Legislature, imposing new and stringent provisions to guard against importation into Germany, and notably from Russia, of animals affected with rinderpest; and, whether, amongst those provisions there is not the rendering liable to five years penal servitude any persons who may lend themselves knowingly to the introduction of animals so diseased?


in reply, said, that no information had been received at the Privy Council Office of the enactment to which the hon. Member had alluded, and that if the hon. Member had any official information on the subject he should be very glad to receive it.
