HC Deb 18 April 1904 vol 133 c380

I beg to ask the hon. Member for North Huntingdonshire, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether the Board has information showing that any infectious disease has existed amongst Canadian cattle since the passing of the Diseases of Animals Act in 1896, and why healthy Canadian cattle cannot be imported for the benefit of cattle feeders in this country.


The reply to the first Question is in the negative. With regard to the second I can only say that the Diseases of Animals Acts provide that no animals brought to this country from abroad shall be moved alive out of the wharf at which they are landed. They cannot, therefore, be used for store purposes.
