Sir W. Bromley-Davenport

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many slaughterhouses throughout England and Wales do not at present conform to the requirements of the Slaughterhouses Act 1958.

The new slaughterhouse standards have been brought into force by Statutory Instrument in all but 125 local authority districts, containing

53 public and 299 licensed private slaughterhouses, some of which may in fact already comply.
