THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES (LORD LUCAS)
My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to authorise the regulation and restriction of the slaughter of animals used for food, and to move that it be read a first time. I propose to put it down for Second Reading to-morrow, and as it is an urgent Bill I shall ask your Lordships to allow it to pass through all its remaining stages on that day. By to-morrow the Bill will be printed, so that your Lordships will be able to see its text.
§ Moved, That the Bill be now read 1ª.—(Lord Lucas.)
§ On Question, Bill read 1ª; to be printed; and to be read 2ª To-morrow. (No. 259.)
§ House adjourned at a quarter before Five o'clock, till To-morrow, a quarter past Four o'clock.
