HC Deb 22 April 1971 vol 815 c1346
9. Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to implement the recommendations made in the Report of the Littlewood Committee on the welfare of animals, in particular by strengthening his Department's advisory committee on animal welfare.
