I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies gave to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for North Islington (Major-General Sir N. Moore) on 14th March in reply to a somewhat similar question. The position has been explained to the Government of New Zealand as well as to the Government of the Commonwealth of Australia.
asked the Undersecretary to the Scottish Board of Health the harbour or ship dues and other charges payable at the ports of Glasgow and Dundee, respectively, for vessels engaged in the Canadian cattle trade entering these ports, and also in respect of the Canadian livestock landed there, as compared with the corresponding dues and rates exacted at at English ports?
All questions arising under the recent Importation of Animals Act, 1922, are under the control of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture, and I would suggest that, if my hon. and learned Friend has any inquiries to make, they should be addressed to him.
