Alert me about debates like this

The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Sir Arthur Boscawen):

The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The extension of time was necessitated by a strike of slaughtermen at Birkenhead which rendered it impossible to secure the slaughter of the cattle at that port. I understand that the strike is now settled and I shall be prepared to rescind the amending Order in question as soon as the cattle at present at, the ports have been disposed of.
