HC Deb 14 March 1906 vol 153 cc1254-5

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in the event of the Government deciding to remove the restrictions which at present exist against the importation of Canadian cattle into the United Kingdom for breeding or store purposes, he proposes to introduce a measure to reduce the annual instalments payable by farmers in Ireland who have bought out their holdings under recent Land Acts to an extent commensurate with the loss which they would suffer through the removal of the protection which existed when they bought their farms.


I beg to refer to the reply which I gave on Monday last to a Question on this subject put by the hon. Member for South Cork.†
