§ 25. Mr. McELWEE
asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been drawn to the Motion standing on the Order Paper on deer hunting; and what steps he proposes to take thereon?That this House is of opinion that a Select Committee of Members' of both Houses of Parliament should be appointed to inquire into and report upon the whole question of deer hunting with hounds, including the methods of killing hunted doer, and the suffering to deer caused thereby, also the amount of damage done to agricultural land, crops, stock, fences, etc., by deer, and the hunting of deer, and as to the best means of preserving deer.
§ Mr. CLYNES
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. In view of the present state of business, I am afraid it is impossible to give any special facilities for the Motion.
