§ 39. Mr. RYE
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will consider the advisability of promoting legislation making it compulsory for all slaughterers to effectually stun any animal, before proceeding to slaughter, with a mechanically-operated instrument suitable and sufficient for the purpose?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)
I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend sees no prospect of the Government considering the introduction of legislation on this subject.
