§ MR. CORRIE GRANT (Warwickshire, Rugby)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has observed that the Hurlingham Club has decided to abolish pigeon shooting; and whether, in view of that fact, he will propose legislation next session in order to extend the Cruelty to Animals Act to wild creatures kept in confinement and released for the immediate purpose of being hunted or shot.
§ MR. AKERS-DOUGLAS
I have seen the announcement about the Hurlingham Club to which the hon. Member refers, and I was glad to see it; but I am not prepared to undertake legislation on the subject.
