§ Mr. Hancock
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence when he will set targets for the Defence Animal Centre for 1999–2000. 
§ Mr. Spellar
[holding answer 25 February 1999] With effect from 1 April 1999 the DAC will no longer be an Agency in its own right and will become part of the Army Training and Recruitment Agency (ATRA). The targets set for the DAC will therefore be incorporated within the ATRA targets.
