§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will do everything possible to expedite the compulsory introduction of the humane killer into this country?
§ Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
I canot undertake to promote legislation for the purpose suggested at the present time. It is, however, open to any local authority to adopt the model bye-law which has been issued by my Department providing for the compulsory use of a humane killer, and 90 local authorities have already adopted this bye-law.
