HC Deb 18 December 1912 vol 45 c1504
72. Mr. BARLOW

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he is now in a position to give any information with regard to the Salford market, and whether he can see his way to hold out a prospect of relaxing the restrictions imposed on the use of the market for imported cattle at an early date?


I regret that in view of recent events I cannot make any statement at present with regard to the read-mission of Irish cattle to inland markets. I would remind the hon. Member, however, that animals from Ireland, except from certain specified areas, may now be landed at the Foreign Animals Wharf, Old Trafford, Manchester, for slaughter at the wharf.
