For a constant $\alpha\in \left(-\frac{\pi}{2},\frac{\pi}{2}\right)$,  we define
a  subclass of the spirallike functions, $SP_{p}(\alpha)$, the set
of all functions $f\in \mathcal{A}$
In  the present paper, we shall give the estimate of the
 norm of the pre-Schwarzian derivative  $\mathrm{T}_f=f''/f'$ where $\|\mathrm{T}_f\|=\sup_{z\in \Delta} (1-|z|^2)|\mathrm{T}_f(z)|$ for the functions in  $SP_{p}(\alpha)$.
