HC Deb 20 September 1948 vol 456 c13W
Mr. Law

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware of the cruel treatment accorded to horses on their way to slaughterhouses where they are passed as fit for human consumption; and if he will take steps to investigate this state of affairs.

Mr. T. Williams

I would refer the right hon. Gentleman to the reply I gave today to my hon. Friends the Members for Sparkbrook (Mr. Shurmer) and Ipswich (Mr. Stokes).
