HC Deb 24 February 1896 vol 37 c922
MR. W. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will agree to the Return as to ships engaged in the Irish Cattle Trade, which stands on the Paper this day?


The Animals (Transit and General) Order of 1895 is of a general character, and I have no means of knowing what are the particular alterations which have been made in order to give effect to it in the case of each of the numerous vessels to which it applies. In these circumstances, I regret that it is not possible for me to comply with the wishes of my hon. Friend.
