It will be a great help when we have, throughout Europe, slaughterhouses that are recognised by every part of Europe as reaching the same standards. I agree with the hon. Gentleman that the more meat that can be carried on the hook and the less on the hoof, the better, but within the Community there will be transport of live animals. I am determined that that transport shall be at a standard that is proper and that it reaches the high standards we have in Britain and reaches from the north of Scotland to the south of Sicily.
