§ 39. Mr. A. M. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the Royal Agricultural Society of England was consulted before the recent Order allowing 100 Friesian cattle to be imported from South Africa was issued; and whether the British Friesian Society itself has been consulted in the matter?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Guinness)
The answer to the first part is in the affirmative, and to the second part in the negative. I would point out that the Importation of Pedigree Animals Act, 1925, only requires consultation with the Royal Agricultural Society of England and the Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland.
