§ 41. Mr. HALL-CAINE
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the accident at the Whipsnade Zoo on 7th June, when a man was killed by lions, he will take steps to require keepers at this and other zoos to be armed with lethal or other weapons to enable them to deal with any such emergency effectively and also to ensure adequate precautions being taken?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I have no power to require keepers at zoos to be armed and I am not prepared to propose legislation on the subject.
