§ SIR SAMUEL HOARE () Norwich
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he has received a 89 copy of the resolutions passed by the Norfolk Chamber of Agriculture on Saturday last, and whether he is able favourably to consider them.
§ *MR. AKEKS DOUGLAS (for Mr. LONG)
My right hon. friend has received the resolutions to which my hon. friend refers, and with regard to the matter to which, as he understands, the greatest importance attaches namely, the movement of animals for slaughter—he is glad to say that he has been able to give certain facilities for this purpose in an order which comes into operation to-day, a copy of which he will be happy to give to my hon. friend. The other suggestions of the Norfolk Chamber will not be lost sight of, but it would be unsafe as yet for him to sanction any further relaxation of the restrictions.
