§ Mr. FIELD
asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland), whether he is aware that 46,000 milch cows were exported from Ireland last year; and whether, in view of the diminished and insufficient supply of milk, especially in Dublin city and suburbs, the Department will consider the advisability of limiting the export of milch cows, so as to enable a sufficient home supply?
§ Sir T. RUSSELL
The Department are aware that up to the end of October this year 46,620 milch cows were exported from Ireland to Great Britain as against some 45,000 in the previous year. The question of the exportation of mulch cows from this country has been and is receiving the careful consideration of the 1373W Department, both in relation to the immediate supply of milk and the maintenance of the production of mild). cows.
