HC Deb 31 July 1952 vol 504 c191W
114. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that a pack of beagles is maintained at Dartmouth College; what proportion of the maintenance of this pack is met by public funds; and if he will take steps to ban the pack in view of the cruelty involved.

Commander Noble

This pack is not maintained out of public funds. My right hon. Friend does not propose to ban the pack, which has provided a form of recreational exercise for cadets for over a century.
