HC Deb 14 February 1972 vol 831 cc25-6W
74. Mr. Burden

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in which territories under the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom the main provisions of the Veterinary Surgeons Act, 1966 are operative.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

The Veterinary Surgeons Act, 1966, is operative in the United Kingdom. Of the remaining territories to which United Kingdom jurisdiction extends, one—St. Helena—has passed the English Law Application Ordinance, 1970, which applies the 1966 Act in St. Helena to the extent that it is appropriate and suitable to local circumstances.
