Mr. Peter Mills

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will now introduce legislation to make safety frames compulsory for agricultural tractors, in view of the increasing farm deaths through crushing.

My right hon. Friend and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland intend in the near future to issue proposals for regulations on this subject for consideration by interested organisations. The regulations would be made under the Agriculture (Safety, Health and Welfare Provisions) Act.
