HC Deb 26 November 1928 vol 223 cc29-30
36. Mr. A. M. WILLIAMS

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the London quarantine station is being used to its full capacity; and whether any more Governments have agreed to accept animals that have passed through the station?


The station was approximately full during the period from 24th July to 26th October. During the remainder of the period the station has only been partially occupied. The demand for pedigree stock, is of course, bound to fluctuate. The Dominions and Colonies who have signified their readiness to accept pedigree stock through the station are:—

  • The Union of South Africa,
  • Southern Rhodesia,
  • Northern Rhodesia,
  • Irish Free State, and
  • Palestine.


Is there any prospect of any pedigree animals going from this country to America passing through the stations?


I will make inquiries and inform my hon. Friend.
