HL Deb 11 December 1997 vol 584 c43WA
Lord Rowallan

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, in view of advice from the British Equine Veterinary Association that in European law the horse is classified as a food producing animal, how they can treat the horse as a food producing animal, but not an agricultural animal.

Lord Donoughue

Classification of all horses as agricultural animals is not a requirement of European law.
