I accept the Minister's response, but may I remind him of his statements during our EC presidency when he gave every indication that the matter was to be tackled more urgently? Is he aware that there has been a very large increase in the numbers of animals being exported? He will be aware that we have recommenced exporting to Spain. That cannot be good for the animals and every welfare organisation in the country is opposed to what is going on at the moment. I ask for even more urgency on a matter that we have discussed on many occasions in the House.
