§ 40. Mr. PATRICK WHITE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of 1658 Agriculture the names of the owners who were present when their hay-fed lambs, which had increased in weight during the period of detention, were weighed?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of AGRICULTURE (Sir Harry Verney)
In reply to the hon. Member's question, I can quote the following as an instance: At certain weighings which took place at Holyhead, Mr. John Magee, owner, of Holyhead, and Mr. John Flanagan, acting for the late Mr. James Carter, owner, of Oldham, were present. The lambs had been fed on milk or milk gruel, the older ones on crushed oats, bran, or hay.
