§ 56. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he has yet reached a decision on the recommendations of the Inter-departmental Committee on Slaughterhouses.
§ The Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Mr. Heathcoat Amory)
Final decisions have not yet been reached.
As I have said before, I am as anxious as the hon. Member to get 364 a firm proposal before the House at the earliest moment. I am equally anxious to get the widest possible measure of agreement before I forward definite proposals. I feel that a few months spent in doing that will be time very well spent.
