§ Miss Maynard
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will introduce measures to promote a more natural and healthy way of rearing animals, including measures to transfer any grants, subsidies and tax concessions at present available for intensive methods.
§ Mrs. Fenner
As the hon. Member knows, one of the recommendations in the first report of the Agriculture Committee in the 1980–81 Session—HC 406—related to the impact of tax and grant policies on animal husbandry methods. The Government hope to publish their response to that report soon.
