CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - LOADING OF FAT CATTLE.
Mr. JOHN CONLAN Mr. JOHN CONLAN
Mr. JOHN CONLAN asked the Minister for Lands and Agriculture if he is aware that the Department of Lands and Agriculture has given instructions to the Railway Company that not more than seven fat cattle may be loaded in one of their waggons, and if he is aware that the experience of members of the cattle trade and farmers generally is that in waggons not loaded to their full capacity much more injury is likely to be caused to stock than if fully loaded; and if, in view of this, and also of the consideration that an addition to the already high cost of transit is involved, he will direct the withdrawal of the instruction referred to.
Mr. BURKE Mr. BURKE
Mr. BURKE: Owing to the absence of the Minister for Lands and Agriculture, the Deputy is requested to kindly repeat this question towards the end of next week, when it is hoped the Minister will be available.
