§ Mr. John Hall
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will introduce legislation to ban the slaughter for export of in-calf cows.
§ Mr. Soames
No, except where veterinary examination shows them unfit for travel. As I said in reply to the question by the hon. Member for Chorley (Mr. Kenyon) on 5th May, while some breeding stocks have been slaughtered there are indications that the number of dairy herd replacements is increasing.
