HC Deb 26 June 1935 vol 303 c1177

Order for Second Reading read.

7.13 p.m.


I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read a Second time."

This Bill, which comes from another place, is, I think, non-controversial. Its main objects are, first, to bring poultry within the provisions of the Diseases of Animals Acts, and, second, to provide for the regulation of the manufacture and importation of certain therapeutic substances intended for use for veterinary purposes. The provisions under which they are now made and sold are very unsatisfactory, and representations have been made to the Ministry for some time by agricultural interests. A standard for one of these substances was recommended by the Cattle Diseases Committee of the Economic Advisory Council. The Bill will go upstairs, and there will be full opportunity for examining it in detail.

7.14 p.m.


We offer no objection to this Bill; we think it is very necessary.
