45. Mr. Bernard Taylor
asked the Minister of Agriculture, in view of the outbreaks of foot and mouth disease, whether he will consider placing a ban on the movement of store and dairy cattle for a period of 14 days when bought in a public market.
§ The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. R. S. Hudson)
I have considered the suggestion very carefully, and am satisfied that it would not be practicable to prohibit the movement of store and dairy cattle for 14 days after their movement from public markets.
