HC Deb 14 June 1901 vol 95 c423
MR. LOUIS SINCLAIR (Essex, Romford)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether, seeing how easily under present conditions, horses are infected with dangerous diseases, he will consider the advisability of issuing a regulation to the effect that every public drinking place for animals must be provided with a standpipe and tap, which will enable carmen to fill their own buckets and water their horses without fear of infection.


I have no power to issue such a regulation as the hon. Member suggests.
