§ Mr. L. M. Lever
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made in the appointment of the departmental committee which is to inquire into the working of the Cruelty to Animals Act 1876; and what qualifications he would regard as suitable for members of this committee.
§ Mr. Brooke
I am glad to be able to inform the House that Sir Sydney Little-wood has accepted my invitation to serve as Chairman of the Committee. I have in mind to appoint to the Committee some members with expert knowledge of the problems involved, and others with general qualifications.
