47. Lieut.-Colonel MOORE
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the extent of support shown in favour of the Slaughter of Animals Bill, he will consider giving facilities for a Second Reading discussion on the Measure and, if carried, for its further passage to the Statute Book?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I am afraid that in the present state of public business it is impossible for me to give such an undertaking as is asked for by the hon. and gallant Member.
With all deference to the right hon. Gentleman, is he 411 aware that there are 25,000,000 in this country, practically the whole of the electorate as represented by their Members of Parliament, who are in favour of this Bill?
§ Mr. BLINDELL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Bill contains Clauses that will seriously interfere with the livelihood and liberty of certain workers in the industry?
