§ 40. Mr. ROBERT MORRISON
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the Committee upon the exportation of worn-out horses to the Continent has presented its Report; and whether the evidence given will be published, together with the Committee's recommendations, and when?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Mr. Edward Wood)
With the permission of the House, I will answer these questions together. I understand that the Committee anticipate that their Report will be presented in about six weeks' time. The evidence will be published with the Committee's recommendations, but until I receive the Report I am afraid I can make no announcement as to legislation.
