HC Deb 20 April 1950 vol 474 cc310-1
30. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Minister of Health whether he has yet given consideration to recommendations (f) to (n) and (r) of the Departmental Committee on the Export and Slaughter of Horses: and, if so, whether he will give an indication of the action it is proposed to take.

Mr. Bevan

These recommendations are still under consideration. I am afraid I am not yet ready to make any statement.

Mr. Sutcliffe

Could the Minister say when he will be able to make a statement?

Mr. Bevan

Discussions are taking place between my Department and the Ministry of Food about the transfer of legal responsibility for this subject, and I hope that a statement will be made next week.
