HC Deb 10 April 1913 vol 51 c1378W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the difficulties placed by the Anglesey local authority in the way of allowing live stock, even after undergoing the twelve hours' quarantine, to cross the roadway to the railway fields; and whether, in view of the injury done to cattle by placing them on concrete floors after long standing on steamers and railway wagons, he will, especially in view of the opening of the lamb season, take immediate steps to put an end to this grievance?


The Board wrote recently to the Anglesey local authority on the subject of the regulations made by them with regard to the movement of Irish stock within their area, and I am informed that the question of revoking the regulations will be considered within the next few days. If my hon. Friend will send me particulars, with dates, of the cases of injury to cattle, to which he refers in the latter part of the question, I will certainly investigate them at once and take steps to prevent any cause for similar complaints occurring in future.
