HC Deb 22 May 1957 vol 570 c88W
Mr. Snow

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is aware that the reductions in exports of cattle on the hoof is not due to Government action but to rises in domestic prices; and whether he will introduce legislation or issue regulations to prevent the present cruelty to animals by restricting exports to those Continental importers who are approved by his Department as observing satisfactory practices in animal welfare.

Mr. Godber:

My right hon. Friend regrets that he is unable at present to add to the statement made in the House on 8th May.
