§ MR. SAUNDERS
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If his attention has been called to an advertisement in The Field for—A keeper's night dog, bull and mastiff; must be a strong, powerful dog, and thoroughly trained to hunt a man by scent and catch him; trial required. Address, &c.;and, whether such use of a dog is lawful?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. CHILDERS)
The Field newspaper is not taken in at the Home Office, and I had no opportunity of seeing the advertisement, which appeared three weeks ago, until the hon. Member kindly sent it to me. I believe that such use of a dog as is apparently intended would be contrary to law.
