Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 20th April 1950.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Minister of Agriculture when he proposes to give effect to the recommendations of Lord Rosebery's Commit-
tee on the Export and Slaughter of Horses.
Mr. T. Williams:
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the full statement I made in reply to the hon. Member for Banbury (Mr. Dodds-Parker) on 30th March.
Yes, but as the right hon. Gentleman will realise, the public have the fate of these exported horses very much at heart. Will he do something, in conjunction with the Minister of Health, to expedite action in regard to this matter?
The hon. and gallant Gentleman has been informed before, I think, that from the date when the Committee was set up no horses were exported, so there cannot have been any anxiety.
Yes, they can be exported.
