HC Deb 29 February 1972 vol 832 c59W
31. Mr. Brewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to secure the signature of more countries to the Balfour Agreement on humane slaughter of animals.

Mr. Anthony Stodart

It rests with the Governments of countries which want to import live animals for slaughter to decide whether they can give the necessary assurances. If they do so, I expect them to be able to comply fully with them.
