HC Deb 11 July 1962 vol 662 cc152-4W
Mr. Iremonger

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet received the comments of the Chairman of the Advisory Committee on the administration of the Cruelty to Animals Act, 1876, concerning the suggestions made by the hon. Members for Ashford (Mr. Deedes), East Grinstead (Mrs. Emmet), and Ilford, North in May of this year; and what action he now proposes to take to improve the administration of the Act.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I recently wrote to Lord Morris of Borth-y-Gest, the Chairman of the Advisory Committee, drawing his attention to the suggestions made in the debate on 10th May. Lord Morris is considering how far he or his Committee may be able to advise on these suggestions.
