HC Deb 11 March 1926 vol 192 c2587
96. Mr. RILEY

asked the Minister of Health the number of local authorities which have already put into operation the Regulations or by-laws with regard to the slaughtering of animals for food; and if he can state whether the application of the by-law is increasing?


I presume the hon. Member refers to the model by-law which provides for the use of a mechanical stunning instrument before slaughter. This by-law has been adopted, in whole or in part, by 190 local authorities. Fifty-seven of these were in the last 12 months.
