HC Deb 22 November 1911 vol 31 c1188

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture if, in giving the statement in the Board's journal on Animal Diseases on the Continent, such terms as Höfe, Foyers, Etables, Cours, Communes, alpages-paturages, etc., can be Anglicised so that the information given in this statement may be more readily understood by those not well versed in the technical phraseology in use on the Continent?


I will consider what can be done to meet the hon. Member's suggestion, with which I am in sympathy. It is not always possible, however, to give a precise English equivalent for these technical terms, and a translation which is only approximately correct is liable to be misleading.
