§ Mr. SWIFT MacNEILL
asked the Home Secretary whether he has received a memorial from the National Canine Defence League, signed by 5,480 persons, protesting against the appointment of Sir John Bose Bradford, who has himself conducted experiments on living dogs, as a member of the advisory body under the Cruelty to Animals Act of 1876; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action thereon?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative; to the second, in the negative. I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement which I made on this matter in the course of a debate in this House on the 18th March last.
