33. Mr. Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he intends to introduce the Bill in respect of slaughterhouses.

Mr. Maclay

A Scottish Slaughterhouses Bill will be introduced as soon as this becomes practicable.

Can the right hon. Gentleman give an assurance, in his own interests and the interests of his right hon. Friends, that this legislation will be introduced before the next General Election?

At this moment I cannot give any assurance of the precise time.
