HC Deb 13 June 1985 vol 80 c519W
Mr. Nicholls

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects to receive recommendations for new regulations based on welfare codes from the Farm Animal Welfare Council; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Fenner

I understand that the council has consulted many interested organisations about its proposals for new legislation and is now considering the responses. I am unable to say when the council will be ready to put its recommendations to Agriculture Ministers, but we await them with interest.
