§ MR. COGHILL (Newcastle-under-Lyme)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, having regard to the recent increase in the number of mad dogs since the suspension of the "rabies" order issued by the police, he will give instructions for that order to be re-issued, and for other precautionary measures to be taken for the protection of the public; and, whether he has any information to show that, in Berlin, where all dogs are at all times compulsorily muzzled, rabies has almost completely disappeared?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam)
(who replied) said, the Commissioner of Police reports no abnormal increase of cases in April in the Metropolitan Police District. We have no official information as to the results of whatever may be the practice in Berlin.
