HC Deb 26 October 1981 vol 10 c289W

Mr. Stephen Ross asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress has been made in drawing up a list of experts further to section 8 of the Zoo Licensing Act; and whether he intends to extend an invitation to the RSPCA to be represented on that list.

Mr. Macfarlane:

We shall soon be asking interested organisations, including the RSPCA, to suggest suitable candidates. The experts will, however, serve as individuals and not as representatives of organisations.
