§ 15. Mr. SAMUEL ROBERTS
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether the President of the Board has received a copy of a resolution passed by the committee of the City of Sheffield Butchers' Association, calling attention to the scarcity of fat stock and consequent high prices to the civil population, and suggesting the desirability of giving facilities for shipping cargoes of fat cattle from Canada, and also from South America, to be killed at the port of landing; and whether he is prepared to take any steps in the matter?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Acland)
Yes, Sir, and the Board are already trying to organise schemes of this 1033 nature, and are quite prepared to consider any definite proposal which may be made to them by persons desiring to be allowed to import live animals for food, subject, of course, to the necessity of preventing the risk of the introduction of disease.
