HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 c423

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a copy of the resolution passed by the Irish Cattle Traders' and Stockowners' Association, protesting against the change recently made in the Army meat tender form, under which contractors can supply foreign meat killed at the port of entry instead of native home-bred meat; and whether, in view of the injury which this change will inflict upon Irish farmers, he will make representations on the subject to the Army Council with the view of having home-bred substituted for home-killed in the forms of tender.


A copy of the resolution in question has been received by the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction, who are in communication with the Army Council in the matter.
