HL Deb 03 November 1997 vol 582 c272WA
Lord Rowallan

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will consider redesignating the horse as an agricultural animal.

The Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Lord Donoughue)

We have no current plans to redesignate all horses as agricultural animals. Horses used primarily in agriculture are already so designated.
