HC Deb 16 December 1970 vol 808 cc362-3W
Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects to receive a report from the Dutch Government on the grounding of the Dutch ship "Hereford Express" off the Mull of Kintyre with a cargo of cattle; and if he will make a copy of his report available to the hon. Member for Gillingham.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The Dutch Government have completed a preliminary inquiry. I expect to receive soon their answers to questions that were raised by Her Majesty's Government concerning possible infringement of the Transit of Animals Orders. These will be studied and I will make information about them available to my hon. Friend.
