HC Deb 07 November 1983 vol 48 c38W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is satisfied that all serious cases of farm animal abuse are brought before the courts.

I am satisfied that the state veterinary service properly discharges its responsibilities under part 1 of the Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1968, by advice and, where necessary, court action.
