Mr Major’s Comments on Humphrey, the Downing Street Cat – 26 September 1995

Below is the text of Mr Major’s comments on Humphrey, the Downing Street cat, made on 26th September 1995.


[Mr Major was asked if Humphrey had killed three robins].


I am afraid they are dead, but it’s natural causes, Humphrey has been unjustly accused, but I can tell you beyond any doubt at all, Humphrey is not a serial killer.
