HC Deb 28 November 1956 vol 561 c52W
Mr. Body

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many horse slaughterhouses and knackers' yards are still below the standards fixed in 1954.

Mr. Amory

My officers have visited all slaughterhouses where horses are known to be killed. Of these two are still, in minor respects, below standard. The inspection of rather more than half the knackers' yards has so far been completed and of those where defects were originally found nine are still unsatisfactory. I am informing local authorities, whose responsibility it is, of these and other sub-standard premises as they come to light so that prompt remedial action can be taken.
