HC Deb 13 December 1945 vol 417 cc764-5W
Mr. Follick

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department under what conditions he proposes to grant permits to pigeon fanciers to allow them to send their birds to race on the Continent; and when he will allow pigeon racing in this country.

Mr. Ede

The Defence Regulation which restricted the taking or sending of live pigeons out of the country was repealed in September, and I am not aware of any restriction on pigeon racing in this country.
