HC Deb 03 July 1911 vol 27 cc785-6

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the statement made by Mr. John Cooke, the New South Wales sheep breeder, when reading a paper on the supply of mutton and wool to Great Britain at the twelfth International Conference of the National Sheep Breeders' Association at Norwich, on Saturday, the 24th June last, to the effect that one of the greatest dangers that this country has to face to-day was that the control of the meat supply to Great Britain would shortly be absolutely in the hands of foreigners; and whether steps were being taken or were contemplated, either by the Government or by the Board, to prevent such an eventuality?


No, Sir.
