Having regard to the intense public interest in the matter, may I ask my right hon. Friend whether he can give time for the consideration of a Motion in the names of hon. Members on both sides of the House relating to cruelty in the Grand National?

No, Sir. I do not see any prospect of giving any Government time for a matter with which the Government are not directly concerned.
