HC Deb 06 July 1900 vol 85 c800

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Department of Agriculture for Ireland if his attention has been called to the losses suffered by Irish farmers owing to the pilfering and wholesale robbery of their butter and other produce during its transit to customers in England; and whether the Department can devise some means, either by the appointment of an official to supervise all rates and charges or some other way, by which such losses can be prevented.


The attention of the Department has been directed to complaints of the character mentioned in the question. The matter is at present under the consideration of the Department.
