HC Deb 20 April 1950 vol 474 c318
56. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps he proposes to take to encourage the breeding of horses in this country without encouraging such breeding for purposes of slaughter.

Mr. T. Williams

Grants are available to heavy horse societies to encourage the breeding of horses. In addition, my Department, in co-operation with the British Horse Society, is preparing a film which, I hope, will stimulate interest in horse breaking and management. More emphasis is also being given to demonstrations in management at local and national agricultural shows.
