No. 1213, dated the 1st March 1904, as promulgates rules under the
aforesaid section, are hereby cancelled.


1.  The Inspector appointed under Section 4 of the Glanders and Farcy
Act shall, whenever he has reason to believe from personal knowledge or
from information given by any person and taken down in writing that a
diseased horse, suffering from Glanders, Farcy, Lymphangitis Epizootica or
Surra, is to be found in any building, enclosure or place, forthwith proceed
to the said building, enclosure or other place, and in the presence of the
owner or other person then in charge, or, if he is absent, in the presence
of another person, shall inspect the said premises and execute and dis-
charge the duties and powers conferred on him under the Act.

The Inspector may, in such entry and search, be accompanied by a
Veterinary Practitioner appointed under the Act, or by such Police officers
as he considers necessary, or by both.

The owner of the premises or person in charge at the time shall give
free ingress to the Inspector, and shall in every possible way facilitate the
search, and he shall be entitled subsequently to receive from the Ins-
pector a statement in writing of the grounds of entry and, in the event
of his premises being infected, shall be furnished with written instructions
as to his liabilities and duties under the Act, signed by the Inspector.

2.  The Inspector shall, if he considers it necessary, seize and hand
over to the Police for detention any horse which he considers or
reasonably suspects to be so diseased. Such horse shall, as soon as
possible and with the exercise of due precautions against contagion to
other horses and men, be examined by a Veterinary Practitioner and dealt
with under the Act. Such precautions shall comprise, in the case of a dis-
charge from the nose, the wearing of a nose bag, and in the case of open
sores, the covering up of the same, so far as is practicable, with disin-
fecting powder and cloths and bandages during removal along public
roads and such removal shall, unless there be any sufficient reason to
the contrary, be at night. These precautions shall be enforced in all case
where horses have to be moved for examination or disposal under the Act.
