HC Deb 01 February 1962 vol 652 c115W
Mr. Owen

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many meat trade inspectors are now in the service of his Ministry; and whether he is satisfied that meat inspection is now adequately covered.

Mr. Vane

The inspection of meat is undertaken by local authorities. In England and Wales over 90 per cent. of meat is inspected but my aim is 100 per cent.
