HC Deb 12 March 1930 vol 236 c1345W

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?


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.
