HC Deb 06 March 1934 vol 286 cc1647-8
58. Mr. DIXEY

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will state what is the percentage of seizures by His Majesty's Customs at the various ports of landing of fat cattle shipped as stores from the Irish Free State?


Information in the form asked for by my hon. Friend is not available, but I may say that in the period from the 1st January when the Cattle (Import Regulations) Order, 1933, came into operation, to the 24th February, the total number of seizures of fat cattle at all ports was 185 representing one-third of 1 per cent. of the total number of cattle imported.
