HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 c2057W
Colonel APPLIN

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the sale of game and other wild birds during the breeding season in our shops; and whether, in view of the cruelty this practice must cause, even in the case of birds from foreign countries, and the waste of valuable bird-life, he will introduce legislation to prevent the continuation of this practice?


My right hon. Friend's attention has been called to this matter, and he hopes to be in a position to make a definite statement on Thursday.
