HC Deb 27 November 1979 vol 974 cc644-5W
Mr. Steen

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list in the Official Report the EEC directives which affect the way in which butcher shops are run.

Mr. Wiggin

The Community has adopted several directives designed to protect animal and public health which affect the production of meat and meat products, but none of these extends to control of butchers' shops.
