§ Mr. CAUTLEY
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether, having 829W regard to the stringency of the provisions of the Tuberculosis Order of 1913, and their effect on the business of dairy farmers and cowkeepers, he will endeavour to obtain from the Prime Minister an opportunity for the discussion of the Order in Parliament before the 1st May, 1913, the date fixed by the Order for its coming into operation?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
Questions relating to the allocation of the time of the House should be addressed to the Prime Minister. I may perhaps be allowed to say, however, that, although I shall be glad to consider any representations which may be made to me in regard to the provisions of the Tuberculosis Order, I think that the desirability of making modifications can be more usefully discussed when the expected effects of the Order have been tested by experience.
