HC Deb 19 March 1923 vol 161 c2140W
Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can state positively that the traffic in worn-out and decrepit horses between this country and Belgium has ceased; and, if not, whether he will take immediate steps to have it stopped?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The standard of fitness which is now required of horses intended for export effectively rules out any horse which is not of good working standard. The second part does not, therefore, arise.
