HC Deb 09 November 1966 vol 735 cc305-6W
Mr. Peter Mills

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will give details of the codes of practice to be established for animal husbandry.

Mr. Peart

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland and I published in September last proposals for legislation on farm animal welfare. These include a proposal to empower us to establish codes of practice. I cannot at present add to what I said on this subject in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Chorley (Mr. Kenyon) on 5th August.—[Vol. 733, c. 200.]
