HC Deb 05 March 1912 vol 35 c350W

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether the Scottish Office received in 1908 a petition from the Scottish Homing Union, and has had considerable correspondence with that body since that date; what has been done there-anent; and whether there is any intention on the part of the Department to assimilate the law of Scotland with that of England by passing an Act for the better protection of homing pigeons?


The petition referred to and several subsequent letters have been received at the Scottish Office and are under consideration along with a draft Bill submitted by the union; but I am not for the present in a position to undertake the introduction of legislation on the subject.
