§ 53. Sir GIFFORD FOX
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, to stop horse and cattle smuggling into Northern Ireland more effectively, he will consider recommending to the Ulster authorities the mobilisation of the B Special Constabulary who have had experience of this type of work before, and who would be quite capable of effectively checking the practices referred to?
According to my information the measures already taken or in contemplation make it unnecessary at present to consider the suggestion of my hon. Friend.
§ 57. Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether recent information would indicate that the steps taken to prevent cattle smuggling from the Irish State into Northern Ireland are achieving their purpose?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
I am informed that the steps already taken, and the publication of the proposed legislation in the Finance Bill, are having a salutary effect.
