asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food on what date the Farm Animal Welfare Council regulations group was set up; on what date its phase one report was received by Ministers; and on what date he expects to receive its phase two report.

The council's regulations group held its first meeting on 11 November 1982 and presented its interim statement of proposed welfare regulations to Agriculture Ministers on 7 November 1986. The group is currently engaged on a study of pig production systems, the report of which I expect to receive around the end of this year.
