HC Deb 25 February 1964 vol 690 cc53-4W
Mr. Delargy

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will introduce legislation to prohibit live hare-coursing.

Mr. Woodhouse

The Committee on Cruelty to Wild Animals, in its Report presented in 1951, did not recommend legislative action for this purpose. In view of its conclusion, the introduction by the Government of legislation to prohibit coursing is not contemplated.
