I should like to congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Harlech, upon his extremely brilliant and able advocacy in pleading their cause with such fire and consistency. 622 Whether the noble Lord likes to score that up as agreement or not, it is to my mind a clear way of stating, shall we say, a semi-truth. This is, after all, a common adjective in the English language, yet on that word he hinged the whole of his argument. I presume that at any rate South Wales will come more or less under Bristol University for this purpose. I do not imagine hat the monopoly of such a word as "veterinary" amounts to very much, so far as the future and development of the profession itself are concerned. 0000013606 00000 n This question is probably the most difficult we have had to face in drawing up this Bill. I think the case has been given away on that ground by the noble Viscount, Lord Bledisloe, in the Amendment which was down on the Order Paper in his name but which he did not move, and which was referred to by the noble Earl, Lord De La Warr. 0000014836 00000 n It conjures up the vision of a Beatrix Potter world—the spectacle of a dog going around with a black bag.

They have to accept the rules and practices of the Royal College, and pay a fee. The noble Earl said: This is a minor Amendment which merely affects the Disciplinary Committee in Eire. It is a matter of real importance, which affects a class of the community doing invaluable service to agriculture. 0000016742 00000 n I see no reason for it at all.
