HC Deb 27 March 1882 vol 268 c29

asked the Vice President of the Council, Whether he will direct that the weekly Returns of infected areas under the Contagious Diseases (Animals) Act, which are printed for the use of the central office, shall be forwarded to the clerks of the local authorities, in order to enable them to make adequate rules for the protection of their districts, without the necessity of constantly obtaining copies of, and searching through, the London Gazette?


The Returns of infected areas are advertised in The London Gazette for the convenience of local authorities. It would unnecessarily increase the trouble and expense if we were to undertake to furnish printed copies of these weekly Returns to the various committees, which number some thousands.
