HC Deb 12 July 1962 vol 662 c165W
63. Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied that the present regulations imposed under the Riding Establishments Act are sufficient to ensure the humane treatment of horses in these establishments.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I have no reason to suppose that the existing powers conferred on local authorities by the Riding Establishments Act, 1939, are inadequate for this purpose.
