§ 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.
