In England twelve counties and five boroughs, in Wales two counties, and in Scotland twenty-four counties and ten burghs have regulations in force the effect of which is to prohibit the entry of Irish store cattle into their districts. There remain in England thirty-nine counties and 188 boroughs, in Wales ten counties and eight boroughs, and in Scotland nine counties and twenty-two burghs, into which Irish store cattle can be moved subject to the conditions prescribed in the Orders issued by the Board, which have already been explained to the House.
