HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 c1035W
Mr. Kenyon

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is satisfied that the standard of bulls imported into this country from Ireland is equal to the standard now required by this country under the new licensing regulations.

Mr. Williams

Very few bulls are now being imported from Eire into Great Britain. No bull over the age of ten months that is imported for breeding purposes can be kept unless it is licensed in accordance with the Regulations made under the Improvement of Livestock (Licensing of Bulls) Act, 1931. Any imported bull that does not reach the required standard must be castrated or slaughtered.
