HC Deb 16 June 1927 vol 207 c1166

asked the Minister of Agriculture when the three quarantine stations for the export of pedigree cattle will be ready for use?


The Empire Marketing Board has offered to finance the establistment of three quarantine stations; in London, Liverpool and Glasgow. The Royal Agricultural Society of England has agreed to establish and maintain the London and Liverpool Stations, and has instructed an architect to prepare plans for the former and is seeking a site for the latter. The Highland and Agricultural Society has undertaken to establish and maintain a quarantine station at Glasgow if the Empire Marketing Board will find the funds. I am unable to say when these quarantine stations will be ready for use.
