HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 cc645-6W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that his Department called upon the Glasgow Corporation some time ago to disinfect its abattoir against foot-and-mouth disease and that in the process considerable damage was done to the personal property of the slaughtermen employed in the abattoir; and, if so, will he see to it that the men are compensated for their loss?


My right hon. Friend is aware that a claim has been made for alleged damage to the slaughtermen's personal property. The disinfection of the abattoir was carried out, in accordance with the requirements of the Foot- and-Mouth Disease Order of 1928, by and at the expense of the Glasgow Corporation. Any claim arising out of the disinfection is a matter for the Corporation.
