The Earl of Avon

My Lords, I beg to move that this House doth agree with the Commons in their Amendment No. 122. The new subsection (4) adds to the Bill the names of the seven recognised dairy breeds in England and Wales, for the purposes of the bull exemption subsection. These seven breeds would be prohibited in fields crossed by public paths. The new subsection (5) empowers the Secretary of State to add or remove any breed from the list.

Moved, That this House doth agree with the Commons in the said amendment.—(The Earl of Avon.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
