§ MR. H. C. STEPHENS (Middlesex, Hornsey)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he is aware that a dog was killed by the police at Hendon on 4th March, and that, upon post-mortem by the County Veterinary Inspector, rabies was found to be markedly present; and whether further effort can be made to expedite the completion of arrangements for the muzzling order he has decided to issue?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF AGRICULTURE (Mr. WALTER LONG,) Liverpool, West Derby
I am aware of the case to which my hon. Friend directs attention. Every possible effort is being made to expedite the completion of the arrangements we propose to make for the suppression of rabies.
