Keeping Stock on the Quarantine Station

Keeping Stock on the Quarantine Station.

The Committee referred to this subject as follows:—"The present system of the Quarantine Island caretaker being allowed to keep stock of his own is considered by many importers in every way most objectionable."

Mr Ritchie explained that the Agricultural Department had taken over the management of Quail Island from the Customs Department, and that in future no stock would be allowed there.

The explanation was deemed satisfactory, and the matter was allowed to drop.
