HL Deb 22 June 1990 vol 520 c1260WA
Lord Northfield

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many deer of all species were exported from Great Britain in the past two years and to which countries.

Baroness Trumpington

Data collected by HM Customs do not identify deer separately from many other species of animals. It would involve disproportionate cost to collect information on export certificates issued by animal health officers which would not in any event provide a reliable guide to the numbers of animals subsequently exported.
