§ MR. DALY (Monaghan, S.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he has succeeded with the authorities in Lancashire to allow Irish reared pigs to be kept by the people of that county for fattening purposes?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Mr. W. H. LONG,) Liverpool, West Derby
I have brought the representations made to me by the honourable Member under the notice of the Lancashire local authority, but sufficient time has not yet elapsed for me to receive any communication from them on the subject. But the honourable Member must clearly understand that I cannot interfere with the discretion exercised by any local authority in regard to this matter.
