HC Deb 09 July 1913 vol 55 cc423-4W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture, in reference to the traffic in worn-out horses, whether the officers employed in making voyages with worn-out horses up to 1st October, 1910, have ceased to make such voyages; and whether the officers who now make such voyages are also in some cases the veterinary officers who examine the horses before shipment?


Except that Mr. Revill made voyages on vessels carrying horses to the Continent, both before and after the 1st October, 1910, the answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.
