§ 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.
