HC Deb 11 May 1971 vol 817 c62W
47. Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if steps will be taken to ban the manufacture and use of the unicar cow pen in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

The Unicar cow system is not in use even on an experimental basis in this country. So far as I am aware it is not being used commercially anywhere. As I explained in a previous reply my right hon. Friend has no power to impose a ban on its production without evidence to justify such a step: but if what we have heard of the system is an accurate description of it, neither my right hon. Friend nor I would be likely to favour its introduction into this country.
