§ MR. TUITE (Westmeath, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland can he state the reason assigned by the Privy Council for refusing to permit the removal of cattle in those districts of the Mullingar and Delvin Unions which have been declared free from pleuro-pneumonia for the period prescribed by the Order in Council?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
There are no restrictions on the removal of cattle in the Delvin Union. As regards Mullingar Union, the Parish of Killucan has, in consequence of outbreaks of pleuro-pneumonia there, been declared under Order in Council a scheduled district since February 14 last. This district is under observation, and the Scheduling Order will be revoked as soon as it is deemed that it can be done with safety.
