HC Deb 13 February 1911 vol 21 cc677-8

asked the President of the Local Government Board, if, during the continuance of the virulent plague in China, he could totally prohibit the introduction of Chinese pork into this country, having regard to the reports of the disposal of the dead bodies there and the reported habits of the Chinese pigs?


The districts in China which are affected with plague are remote from the districts from which pigs have been imported to this country. No circumstances have arisen necessitating the taking of other measures than those of adequate inspection of imported meat which is in operation.
