HC Deb 13 December 1938 vol 342 c1772
11. Mr. Lambert

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has made or intends to make any order regulating the import of livestock or meat into the United Kingdom under Section if of the Livestock Industry Act, 1937?

Mr. Stanley

An order regulating imports of fresh and frozen pork from foreign countries, which was originally made under the Agricultural Marketing Act, 1933, is now in force under the Section to which the right hon. Gentleman refers. No other Order has so far been made under the Section, but imports of beef and mutton and lamb from foreign countries are regulated under the Ottawa Agreements Act. I cannot at present say whether it will be necessary in the future to make further use of the powers under the Livestock Industry Act.
