asked the Minister of Health whether any action has been taken, and whether any legislation is contemplated, following upon the Report of the Departmental Committee on Meat Inspection?
Yes, Sir. Steps have been and are being taken to carry out such of the recommendations of this Committee as can be dealt with under existing powers. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of a circular already issued. Other matters are being dealt with by Regulations in course of being drafted, and I will send my hon. Friend copies in due course. In the present state of Parliamentary business I am afraid that it will not be possible to give effect to those recommendations of the Committee which require furl her legislation.
