HC Deb 14 March 1922 vol 151 cc1976-7

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he has received a copy of the resolution which was passed unanimously by the Lancashire Council of Meat Traders, protesting against the continuance of the embargo on Canadian store cattle; and whether he intends to remove the embargo, and so carry out the recommendations of the Royal Commission?


I have been asked to reply. The answer of the first part of the question is in the affirmative, but as my right hon. Friend explained, in answer to the hon. and gallant Member for Rhondda East, on the 9th instant, the Government do not propose to introduce legislation to remove the embargo on Canadian store cattle.
