HC Deb 22 December 1965 vol 722 c439W
Mr. Rankin

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he proposes to take to make regulations requiring conditions for particular animals, in view of the fact that the committee appointed to inquire into livestock husbandry declared that certain practices of intensive farming are contrary to animal welfare and need to be controlled.

Mr. Ross

I cannot say what action may be necessary until my right hon. Friend and I have completed our study of the Brambell Committee's Report and of the views being submitted by interested organisations.
