Lord Houghton of Sowerby

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many prosecutions have been made during the past 10 years for breaches of the conditions of the exemptions granted by Section 36 of the Slaughterhouses Act 1974 and related Acts for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The Minister of State, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Earl Ferrers)

I regret that this information cannot be provided as there is no central record of prosecutions brought by local authorities under this legislation.
