HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 cc1267-8

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture when he will be in a position to relax or remove the restrictions upon the importation of Irish hay into Great Britain?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Runciman)

I have received from the Irish Department some proposals with regard to the admission of Irish hay and straw into Great Britain, and vice versÂ, which are now under consideration, but I do not see my way as yet to sanction any modification of the existing restrictions.
