§ 1. Sir G. Fox
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he will provide information as to the nature of the training in scientific methods and animal husbandry of those inspectors appointed by him under the Cruelty to Animals Act, 1876.
§ Mr. Ede
If the words in the Question refer to special courses of instruction in the management of farm animals, which are arranged for students seeking degrees or diplomas in agriculture, dairying or veterinary medicine, the answer is that the medical men appointed to assist me in the administration of the Act of 1876 are not required to have taken such courses.
