HC Deb 07 November 1983 vol 48 c38W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will consider the establishment of an animal welfare inspectorate to be responsible for enforcement of welfare legislation.

Mrs. Fenner

The state veterinary service already has a duty to enforce the provisions of part 1 of the Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1968 and will continue to give a high priority to this work.
