§ 16. Mr. Spence
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to publish details of the Government's plans for the future location and arrangement of slaughterhouses in Scotland.
This matter has been examined by the Scottish inter-Departmental Committee on Slaughterhouses whose Report my right hon. Friend has just received and hopes to publish shortly. The Committee's recommendations will require to be discussed with the local authorities and other interests concerned before decisions are reached.
§ Mr. Spence
Can my right hon. and gallant Friend say whether there will be an opportunity to consider the Report and have a discussion before a final decision is arrived at?
