HC Deb 05 March 1903 vol 118 cc1684-5

Order read, for resuming Adjourned Debate on Question [2nd March]. "That the Bill be now read a second time."

Question again proposed:—Debate resumed.


said that this Bill had for its object a complete change in an Act passed very recently after careful discussion by this House. He believed that the provisions of the Act, so far as the general public were concerned, had given perfect satisfaction. Undoubtedly certain parties, who were probably actuated by a desire for scientific research and various matters of that kind, thought that to a certain extent they were hampered by the provisions of the Act, and they wanted the limitations placed on experiments on live animals by the Act of 1876 removed.

And, it being Midnight, the Debate stood Adjourned.

Debate to be resumed this day.
