§ *SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture if he has any intention of introducing a Dogs Bill in the present Session; and, if he will undertake to give time for its consideration in the country?
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Mr. WALTER LONG, Liverpool, West Derby)
I hope to be able very shortly to lay on the Table a Bill for the better regulation of dogs on the lines recommended by the 302 Departmental Committee by which the question was recently considered. So far as I can gather, the proposals to be embodied in the Bill commed themselves to the general opinion of the country, but it is not intended to make substantial progress with the Measure during the present Session.
