§ MR. MAHONY
I beg to ask the Lord of the Treasury whether he is aware that the weighbridge in the Glasgow Cattle Market is so situated that cattle, in order to be weighed, have to be driven through that portion of the market allocated to horses exposed for sale; and in view of the fact that the inconvenience, and danger consequent is so great that many persons desirous of having their cattle weighed are unable to do so, would he consider what means there are of enforcing the law which requires that suitable weighing machines should be provided?
§ A LORD OF THE TREASURY (Sir H. MAXWELL,) Wigton
I am informed that the situation of the weighbridge in Glasgow Cattle Market is as described in the question. No complaints have ever been made to the officer in attendance at the Market. If representations are made to the Market Authority by any persons who are inconvenienced by the present situation I have no doubt they will receive consideration.
