HC Deb 08 March 1911 vol 22 c1363W

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the sanitary restrictions to prevent insect infested and diseased fruit and vegetables from coming into the Transvaal have recently been rescinded; and, if so, will he use his influence to safeguard the interests of agriculturists whose livelihood is thus jeopardised?


According to the local Press certain inspectors of plants were removed from the Transvaal border. It appears that the matter, which is one of local administration, was to be brought to the attention of the Union Government.
