§ 80. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Minister of Agriculture what provision is made to ensure that no horse or pony, after being passed by the veterinary in- 1114 spectors as fit to be exported, under the Protection of Animals Act, 1914, can be exchanged for another?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
After the animals have been passed by the veterinary inspector for shipment, a label, stating that this is so, is fixed to each animal. The actual shipment of the animals is supervised by shipment officers, one of whose duties it is to see that substitution does not take place.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Is the right hon. Gentleman perfectly sure that the label has not in more than one case been changed?
