HC Deb 06 August 1919 vol 119 c380W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been called to the resolutions passed by the Council of the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society, by the Ulster Farmers' Union, and by other public bodies, on the suggested relaxation or repeal of the Diseases of Animals Act, 1896, by admitting foreign or Colonial store cattle into Great Britain; and what action he is taking in view of that resolution?


The attention of my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary has been directed to the resolution in question, and the matter has received his careful consideration. The attention of the hon. Member is directed to the statement made in another place on the 28th ultimo, on behalf of the Board of Agriculture, regarding the importation of store cattle into the United Kingdom.
