HC Deb 15 May 1934 vol 289 c1622
54. Sir G. FOX

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the numbers of horses which have been imported into this country from Northern Ireland in the last 12 months; and whether he is convinced that none of these animals were smuggled over the frontier from the Irish Free State?


Traffic between Great Britain and Northern Ireland is coastwise traffic for Customs purposes, and the Customs therefore have no information as to the number or origin of animals shipped by it.
