§ 54. Mr. FREEMAN
asked the Home Secretary whether it is his intention to prohibit the inclusion of elephants in public processions?
§ Mr. KIRKWOOD
Arising out of the suggestion that there should be prohibition of elephants taking part in public processions, might I suggest that they should not allow so many asses in the processions?
§ Mr. CLYNES
I think the position is well expressed in the schoolboy's essay in which he wrote thatthe elephant was a very useful animal, but when infuriated it would not do so.
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Would the right hon. Gentleman include a provision in the forthcoming legislation to prevent the use of elephants at by-elections?
