asked the Minister of Agriculture whether any case of foot-and-mouth disease has occurred amongst the fat cattle imported from Ireland during the last three months; and whether any outbreaks of the disease during that period can be attributed to Irish stores being admitted into this country?

The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative. With regard to the second part, there is no evidence to show that the disease was introduced into Great Britain by Irish store cattle.
