HC Deb 27 May 1919 vol 116 c1182

Resolution reported, That it is expedient to authorise the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of any expenses that may be incurred by the Secretary of State in carrying out the provisions of any Act of the present Session to control the importation of goods infected or likely to be infected with anthrax, and to provide for the disinfection of any such goods.

Motion made, and Question proposed, That this House doth agree with the Committee in the said Resolution.


I do not wish to cause any delay in the passage of this measure. I wish to express our appreciation of the memorandum drawn up showing particulars of the probable expenses. It is an excellent memorandum, and must have taken considerable time and trouble.
