HC Deb 03 February 1930 vol 234 c1524W
Captain E. WALLACE

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is satisfied that the traffic in worn-out horses is now carried out under proper conditions, and if he contemplates making any further provisions in order to ensure that no avoidable suffering is caused to horses exported from Great Britain and that horses exported for slaughter are humanely killed?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry, gave to a similar question by the hon. Member for Torquay (Mr. C. Williams) on 30th January, of which I am sending him a copy.
