§ 22. Mr. GLOSSOP
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that a large consignment of pigs from Sweden to Canada are going to be transhipped within the port of London; and whether steps will be taken to prevent any contravention of the Diseases of Animals Act, which prohibits the bringing of live pigs and other animals to this country from the Continent of Europe?
§ The FIRST COMMISSIONER of WORKS (Mr. Ormsby-Gore)
I have been asked to reply. Yes, Sir. My right hon. Friend has provisionally agreed to authorise this transhipment under conditions prescribed by him and no contravention of the Diseases of Animals Acts will be involved.
