HC Deb 01 May 1884 vol 287 c1050

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Whether a quarantine of ninety days will be adopted for store animals from scheduled Foreign Countries as now enforced by the United States, Canada, and Australia for store animals from this Country; and, if not, whether he will state the quarantine it is proposed to enforce?


Quarantine must be regulated in each case according to the disease to be provided against, and to the circumstances of each case. The countries referred to in the Question direct their quarantine specially against infected countries. The quarantine we are thinking of is one to be adopted as an extra precaution, applicable to specified regions concerning the soundness and security of which we have distinct and positive assurance.
