§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
On behalf of the hon. Member for South Donegal (Mr. J. SWIFT MACNEILL), I beg to 377 ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Report of the inspector appointed by Government to investigate the circumstances under which operations have been performed, with or without anæsthetics, on living animals, which was promised some weeks ago, will be published and circulated; and, will he explain what is the reason for the delay in the publication of this Report?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY,) Lancashire, Blackpool
The Return of experiments on living animals will, I am informed, be issued to-morrow morning. The delay was caused by my not receiving the Irish portion of the Return until the 27th July.
