HC Deb 22 July 1983 vol 46 c242W
Mr Greg Knight

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has received any representations concerning the exploitation and treatment of Saimiri sciureus squirrel monkeys by holiday photographers; and if he is satisfied that the present law is adequate to prevent the abuse of such animals in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Mellor

We have received no representations; and we are satisfied that the general protection against cruelty afforded to squirrel monkeys under the Protection of Animals Acts 1911–1964 is adequate.
