§ 41. Mr. HOLFORD KNIGHT
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if he has any information as to the value of the greyhound breeding industry to the Irish Free State and the value of greyhounds exported to this country during 1932?
Mr. J. H. THOMAS
I have no information as to the value of the greyhound breeding industry to the Irish Free State. As regards the second part of the question, as was explained by my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury on the 20th July, it is not possible to state the value of greyhounds imported from the Irish Free State into this country during 1932, since these animals are not separately classified in the accounts of imports.
§ Mr. CHARLES WILLIAMS
Arising out of the right hon. Gentleman's original answer, does he mean to tell the House that he does not know anything about greyhounds? I thought he was an authority.
