HC Deb 02 July 1951 vol 489 cc1895-6
47. Mrs. Ganley

asked the Prime Minister whether he will initiate consideration of one Department being made responsible for the inspection and control of slaughterhouses for horses as well as other animals throughout the country.

The Prime Minister

I think this question must await the outcome of the consideration now being given to the long-term arrangements for the slaughter of home produced livestock. In this connection the Ministry of Food and the Ministry of Agriculture are having discussions with the interests concerned.

Colonel Gomme-Duncan

Are discussions going on with the Secretary of State for Scotland on the same point?

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir.
