§ 26. Sir M. Barclay-Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many store cattle were imported into Scotland in the years 1935 and 1936, respectively?
§ Mr. Elliot
The numbers of store cattle landed at ports in Scotland from the whole of Ireland in the years 135 and 136 amounted to 218,000 and 203,000 respectively, of which 131,000 and 128,000 respectively originated in the Irish Free State. In the same years, 1,711 and 9,009 respectively of the Canadian cattle landed at ports in Scotland were licensed out to premises other than a slaughterhouse, but I am unable to say what proportion of these comprised store cattle for fattening. I regret that no particulars are available 2731 of store cattle landed at ports in England and Wales and subseqeuntly moved across the border into Scotland, or landed at ports in Scotland and moved into England and Wales.
