Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Veal Crates (14 Dec 1995)

Mr Colin Shepherd: I thank my hon. Friend for that comprehensive answer.

Orders of the Day — The Commonwealth (16 Mar 1995)

Mr Colin Shepherd: As my hon. and learned Friend, the current chairman of the association's UK branch, says, it finishes tomorrow.
