HC Deb 14 December 1900 vol 88 cc862-3
SIR JAMES RANKIN (Herefordshire, Leominster)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that Great Britain is free from cattle disease of any kind, it would be possible for the Irish Government to remove the restrictions at present existing upon the importation of cattle for breeding purposes from Great Britain into Ireland.


The restrictions upon the importation of cattle from Great Britain into Ireland have been relaxed, but in consequence of the existence of disease amongst cattle in this country it is felt that the restrictions cannot at present be entirely removed.
