HC Deb 22 February 1917 vol 90 cc1493-4W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that complaints have frequently been made respecting the absence of electric light at Manchester cattle lairs; whether he is aware that, in consequence of the refusal of inspectors to inspect live stock even a short period after the specified hour, this delay often entails another long detention, which is the cause of loss and inconvenience; and whether he will make inquiry with a view to provide a remedy?


One complaint has been made to the Board, but only recently, as to the absence of electric light in the Manchester cattle lairs. The Board are now in communication with the owners of the landing place with regard to it.
