§ Mr. BROMLEY
asked the Home Secretary whether applicants for licences or certificates, under the Cruelty to Animals Act, 1876, for the performance of experiments on animals are required to state the number of animals they propose to use for such experiments; whether the Home Office has any record as to the number of animals used, as distinct from the number of experiments performed, under that Act in 1927; and whether the Home Office has any record of the number of dogs and the number of cats used for experiments in 1927, under Certificate B, plus EE?
§ Sir R. GOWER
asked the Prime Minister whether he will grant facilities during the present Parliament for the consideration of a Bill to make the vivisection of dogs illegal?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I cannot undertake to give special facilities for a Bill of the nature indicated by the hon. Member. Private Members interested will no doubt use, as before, the facilities they have for testing the opinion of the House on the subject.
