§ Dr. Reginald Bennett
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what evidence he has amassed during 1975 of British commercial or pleasure vessels taking animals abroad and return with them on board, whether openly or covertly.
§ Mr. Strang
Local authorities have reported three incidents during 1975 where animals were taken abroad on British vessels and returned to this country without import licences having been granted. In all three cases the offenders were successfully prosecuted.
