HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c182W
28. Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with current provisions for animal welfare; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

The Government are committed to updating the Cruelty to Animals Act 1876 and hope to publish proposals in the spring. Other relevant legislation is kept under review but we have no proposals for further amending legislation at present.
