HC Deb 21 December 1989 vol 164 c455W
Mr. Harry Greenway

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects to present the proposed code of conduct for horse sales and markets; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gummer

A new statutory order to protect the welfare of horses at markets, sales and fairs and a related code of practice are in the course of preparation. We hope to complete the new legislation and code of practice in the first half of 1990.
