§ 82. Mr. CAIRNS
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that our homebred animals are rapidly deteriorating and becoming affected with tuberculosis, that is, cattle, sheep, and pigs; and, if that is so, will he remove the embargo and allow healthy cattle, etc., to come in from Canada and thus introduce fresh blood into our stock, and therefore enable us to get cheaper and better milk and cheaper meat?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
The reply to the first part of the question is emphatically in the negative. The second part does not, therefore, arise.
§ Mr. CAIRNS
Has the right hon. Gentleman's attention—[HON. MEMBERS: "Speak up!"]—is the embargo to remain on?
