§ MR. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)
I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether there are any restrictions against the entry into Ireland from Great Britain of live cattle, as store cattle, and as purebred cattle for breeding purposes; if so, what is the nature of these restrictions; and whether there are any corresponding restrictions against the introduction from Ireland of live cattle for either of these purposes into the inland markets of Great Britain.
§ MR. HERBERT SAMUEL (for Sir EDWARD STRACHEY)
The importation of cattle from Great Britain into Ireland is governed by the Importation of Animals (Ireland) Order of 1900, which provides that cattle cannot be landed in Ireland except with the consent of the Irish Department of Agriculture and subject to such conditions as they may prescribe. There are no restrictions on the importation of cattle from Ireland into Great Britain.
