HC Deb 01 March 1984 vol 55 c324W
30. Mr. Robert Atkins

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will review the present regulations on poultry slaughtering.

Mrs. Fenner

My Department issued proposals on 15 February for amendments to the Slaughter of Poultry (Humane Conditions) Regulations 1971 and I have arranged for copies to be placed in the Library of the House. We will be considering amendments to the Poultry Meat (Hygiene) Regulations 1976 in the light of current discussions on the EEC poultrymeat hygiene directive.
