asked the Minister of Health whether the Ministry of Health has issued to the local authorities concerned the circular upon the more humane slaughtering of animals which was promised on 24th July, 1922, by the then head of the Department; if so, will he let Members have a copy of it; and if not, when will it be issued?

As my hon. Friend was informed on the 12th December, the issue of the promised circular was deferred in view of the decision to have the matter considered by a Committee of the Cabinet. The deliberations of the Committee have been unavoidably delayed, but the matter is receiving attention.
