HC Deb 14 June 1866 vol 184 c378

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to introduce during the present Session any measure for the Registration of Dogs, with a view to the prevention of hydrophobia and of other injuries to persons and property for which the owners of dogs are not now practically responsible?


in reply, said, his hon. Friend the Under Secretary for the Home Department would give notice very shortly of a Bill for regulating dogs in the streets of London, and he hoped its clauses would be found useful in abating the nuisances now complained of.
