HC Deb 11 February 1943 vol 386 c1439
38. Mr. Messer

asked the Home Secretary whether he has inquired into the conditions in which the animals belonging to the Harry Benet International Circus are kept, a report on which has been sent to him?

Mr. H. Morrison

When this circus was recently at Hammersmith, an inspection made on behalf of the London County Council showed that such of the animals as had been brought to London were in good condition and properly cared for As, however, the letter which my hon. Friend sent referred to other animals than those brought to London, I am having further inquiry made.
