HC Deb 29 March 1904 vol 132 cc981-2

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Department of Agriculture has received any further representations from public bodies or private persons interested in the bee-keeping industry with a view to checking the disease of foul brood in bees; and, if so, can he say what steps will be taken to carry out the proposals.


No further representation is have been received. The Department is still of opinion that its scheme of instruction in bee-keeping should have an adequate trial before the question of taking additional steps by legislation can properly be considered.
