HC Deb 21 October 2002 vol 391 c86W
Mr. Meale

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent guidelines he has issued on the tethering of horses by police forces; and if he will make a statement. [55876]

Mr. Denham

There is no Home Office or Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidance on this matter. The equine training standards adopted by police forces are that the horses should not be tethered by the reins.
