HC Deb 15 July 1983 vol 45 c462W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of Stale for the Environment what consultations have taken place with interested bodies on the establishment of a code of practice for zoo inspectors; and what has resulted from the consultations that took place early in 1982.

Mr. Waldegrave

Guidance for inspectors, including a model inspectors' report form, will be included in the Secretary of State's standards, for which provision is made in section 9 of the Zoo Licensing Act 1981. Since the earlier discussions a revised draft of the standards has been prepared; it will be issued very shortly as a basis for formal consultations.
