HC Deb 24 January 1974 vol 867 cc2026-7

Motion made, and Question proposed, That this Schedule be the First Schedule to the Bill.

Mr. J. R. Kinsey (Birmingham, Perry Barr)

I have been trying desperately to catch your eye, Mr. Mallalieu. I wish to speak briefly about the slaughtering——

The First Deputy Chairman

Is the hon. Gentleman speaking to Schedule 1?

Mr. Kinsey

Yes. Schedule I relates to the licensing of Shochetim, and the regulations for securing humane conditions of slaughtering are dealt with in Clause 38.

I want merely to ask my right hon. and learned Friend to look into the Shochetim killing of both animals and poultry with a view to seeing whether in future legislation he can come back to the House with more humane methods of slaughtering——

The First Deputy Chairman

Order I should have stopped the hon. Gentleman before. He is quite out of order. His point has nothing to do with consolidation.

Question put and agreed to.

Schedules 2 to 6 agreed to.

Bill reported, without amendment.

Motion made, and Question, That the Bill be now read the Third time, put forthwith pursuant to Standing Order No. 56 (Third Reading), and agreed to, without amendment.
