HC Deb 06 May 1913 vol 52 c1881W

asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether, a few days since, twelve cattle were allowed to pass through Holyhead without being detained; and, if so, will he explain the partial enforcement of the detention Order?


asked whether Lord Coventry was allowed to travel animals purchased in the Royal Dublin Society's Show at Balls Bridge right through to his stud farm without any detention; and whether an exception was made in this case?


In consideration of the special arrangements made for the veterinary inspection and transit of animals shown at the Royal Dublin Society's Show, the Board have sanctioned by licence the removal of such animals direct to their destination in Great Britain without detention at the landing places. A licence was issued in respect of three cattle landed at Holyhead which I am informed are the property of Lord Coventry, and no other cattle have been landed at that port except under the conditions prescribed by the Animals (Landing from Ireland) Order, 1913.
