HC Deb 28 February 1955 vol 537 cc219-20W
76. Mr. Hastings

asked the Minister of Food to what extent horse meat is imported from Eire; and what steps he is taking to encourage this traffic to replace the import of live horses for slaughter.

Dr. Hill

H.M. Government removed restrictions on the import of horse meat into this country in August, 1954, but its export from Eire has not been permitted since 1941.
