§ 18. Mr. P. Roberts
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will authorise reasonable expenditure to enable the enlarging of the cattle quarantine station at Glasgow, in order to be in a position to obtain over £250,000 worth of dollar export as soon as the foot-and-mouth disease ban is lifted on cattle exportable to North America.
§ Sir T. Dugdale
Yes. We have now received information that the Canadian authorities will require all livestock to pass through quarantine when the ban is lifted, and I am arranging for work on the enlargement of the Glasgow station to be put in hand immediately.
