HC Deb 14 February 1911 vol 21 cc1014-5W
Captain O'NEILL

asked the Chief Secretary, whether he would state the names of urban districts in Ireland which were provided with public slaughterhouses, and those (if any) where such slaughter-houses were in course of construction, whether each of those already in use was provided with a qualified meat inspector; what had been the average cost of erecting and equipping these slaughterhouses; and which of them were considered to have been built on the most up-to-date lines and best to fulfil modern requirements?


The Local Government Board do not possess, in a complete form, the information requested in the first paragraph of the question; and the particulars could only be ascertained by communicating with the several urban district councils throughout Ireland. The Board do not consider it advisable to express any opinion such as that requested in the last paragraph of the question.
