HC Deb 05 December 1967 vol 755 cc274-5W
Mr. Pardoe

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what representations he has received about the export of live ponies for slaughter; and what he intends to do to stop this trade.

Mr. Peart

From time to time I receive representations from welfare societies about the export of ponies stated to be for slaughter, and urging control of this.

On the question of stopping any such trade I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave to the Member for Bodmin (Mr. Bessell) on 8th November.—[Vol. 753, c. 126.]
