HC Deb 15 March 1951 vol 485 c1759
52. Lieut.-Colonel Lockwood

asked the Minister of Agriculture the number of live horses exported from this country to Northern Ireland during the last 12 months, giving the monthly figures for that period.

Mr. T. Williams

As the reply involves a tabular statement I will, with permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the statement:

Period Number of horses sent to Northern Ireland
1950 Number
March 12
April 2
May 15
June 10
July 18
August 7
September 15
October 9
November 10
December 8
January 4
February 0

These figures exclude horses sent into Northern Ireland solely for shows and with circuses, as these horses eventually return to their country of origin.
