HC Deb 20 May 1957 vol 570 c62W
50. Dr. Summerskill

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in the light of recent deaths and injuries at prize fights, he will now consider framing legislation to make such activities illegal, or as a first step, to control the promoter, both in the interests of the young boxer and the public.

Mr. R. A. Butler:

I have considered the right hon. Lady's request but do not think that there is any legislation which I can usefully introduce on this subject.
