Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland. – in the House of Commons on 21st February 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT:

(by Private Notice)

asked the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries whether he has issued an Order amending the Foreign Animals Order of 1910 by extending the time for the slaughter of imported cattle from 10 to 20 days; whether he is aware that owing to the limited accommodation at the ports for housing such cattle this extension of time will act as a further restriction instead of facilitating the importation of Canadian cattle for slaughter; and, whether he will consider the immediate rescinding of this Order so as to maintain the food supplies of the industrial areas?
