asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he is yet in a position to make a statement on the report of the Committee of Inquiry into the Veterinary Profession.

My colleagues and I have fully considered those recommendations contained in this report which involve the Government either because they require action by the Government or because of their financial implications. I have deposited in the Library of the House a statement setting out the Government's views. I should like to thank the organisations that commented on the report and to pay tribute particularly to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and the British Veterinary Association for their thorough and constructive examinations of its findings. I should also like once again to express our appreciation of the service rendered by Sir Michael Swann and the members of his committee in producing the report.
