HC Deb 25 October 1956 vol 558 c77W
75. Captain Kerby

asked the Attorney General if he will cause legal proceedings to be taken against those persons responsible for the article in the News Chronicle, published on Saturday, 22nd September, 1956, which deliberately incited readers to break the law by openly advocating the deliberate introduction and spreading of myxomatosis, contrary to the provisions of the Pests Act, 1954, which expressly forbids the deliberate spreading of this disease.

The Attorney-General

No. The article does not, in my opinion, constitute an incitement to commit a criminal offence.
