§ MR. JOHN CAMPBELL
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade 481 if his attention has been drawn to certain cases of cruelty to animals practised in angling for song-birds in Cornwall and for albatross on ocean-going steamers; and what steps he purposes taking in the matter.
* ME. GERALD BALFOUR
No, Sir. The subject is not one which comes within the purview of the Board of Trade, nor have I any powers in the matter.
