HC Deb 30 June 1911 vol 27 c764

Paragraph 2. The hair shall be cut from the neck of any cattle within the meaning of paragraph (e) of section fourteen of this Act directly the animal has been delivered to the knacker.


I beg to move in paragraph 2 to leave out the words "cattle within the meaning of paragraph (e) of Section 14 of this Act" and to insert instead thereof the words "horse, ass, or mule" The reason for this Amendment is that within the meaning of the Act the word "cattle" includes "sheep" amongst other animals.


I want clearly to understand what we are doing by this Amendment. By other Amendments we have been taking out phrases of this kind. It has struck me that all these animals might be cited in the Act in one place and then it-might be referred to afterwards as the previous catalogue.

Amendment agreed to.

Motion made and Question proposed, "That the Bill be now read the third time."

Question put, and agreed to.

Bill read the third time, and passed.
