§ DR. SHIPMAN (Northampton)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many inspections of registered places have been made during the year 1902 by the inspectors appointed under the Act 39 and 40 Vic, c. 77 (The Cruelty to Animals Act, 1876), in England and Scotland and in Ireland.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) The number of inspections of registered places in England and Scotland made in 1902 is 118. As to Ireland, where the administration of the Act does not lie with me, I have made inquiries and am informed that no exact record has been kept of the number of inspections made.
