§ Mr. MALONE
asked the Minister of Health if he has received a Report of the Hobday Committee relating to the employment of casting pens, recommending the use of a casting pen in abattoirs where animals are slaughtered by the Jewish method; and what steps, if any, he contemplates taking to bring the Report to the notice of local authorities in districts where the Jewish method of slaughtering animals is practised?
§ Miss LAWRENCE
My right hon. Friend has received a copy of the report, but he is not prepared to recommend the use of one particular appliance to local authorities.
