§ SIR RICHARD PAGET (Somerset, Wells)
I beg to ask the Vice Chamberlain if ho will be good enough to state when the Annual Veterinary Report of the Agricultural Department for the year 1888 on the working of the Contagious Diseases (Animals) Act will be 895 presented; and why its presentation has been so long delayed?
§ THE VICE CHAMBERLAIN (Viscount LEWISHAM,) Lewisham
In consequence of the Report containing a number of coloured plates which have taken a long time to prepare it has not been found possible to issue it quite so early as in previous years. It is, however, expected that it will be ready for distribution within 10 days.
