§ Mr. FIELD
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that the Dublin Corporation have passed unanimously a resolution protesting against the continuance of the twelve hours' detention of live stock on the British side of the Channel; and whether he will consider the expediency of modifying the Order at once?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I fear that I cannot add anything to the answers I have already given to previous questions. The reduction of the period below twelve hours has been under consideration for some time, but further experience is necessary before I can make any further announcement.
