HC Deb 19 February 1924 vol 169 cc1510-1
18. Mr. LAMB

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action was taken by his Department in the case of the SAS. "Hartington," from which cargo was discharged last year in the port of London without any declaration being made that diseased animals and fittings and fodder had been jettisoned during the voyage from Buenos Ayres; and what action has been taken by the Board to prevent the recurrence of such cases?


The matter to which the hon. Member refers is not one in which the Board of Trade have any jurisdiction, and no action has been taken by them with regard to it.
