asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware of the suffering caused to day-old chicks by delays in rail transport; and if he will make stricter regulations with regard to their conditions of transport by rail.
My right hon. Friend is not aware of any cases of suffering caused to day-old chicks by delays in transit. The Conveyance of Live Poultry Order, 1919, is designed to afford adequate protection, but if my hon. Friend will let me have details of any specific instances of the kind he mentions I will gladly look into them.
