HC Deb 24 July 1973 vol 860 c476W
Mr. Tinn

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will take steps to ban the practice of line firing as a means of curing horses' injured tendons.

Mrs. Fenner

No. We have received no representations on line firing from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and my right hon. Friend has no powers under which he could prohibit the use of the treatment.
