HC Deb 03 December 1908 vol 197 c1682

I beg to ask the hon. Member for South Somerset, as representing the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether the Board have considered or will consider the regulations enforced in British Columbia and other fruit-growing Colonies for the destruction and prevention of fungus and insect pests, with a view to adopting similar regulations in this country.


The Board have carefully studied the regulations to which the hon. Member refers. In preparing regulations suited to the particular conditions of this country it is their practice to make such use as may seem desirable of regulations based upon the experience of other countries.
