HC Deb 18 June 1900 vol 84 c281

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that for a number of years past in several Continental armies numbers of dogs have been specially trained for the purpose of assisting in outpost duty, and whether, in view of the repeated cases of surprises that have occurred during the present war, the Government will seriously consider the expediency of following in this respect the example of these foreign military powers.


This proposal will be carefully examined in addition to others which the experience of the war has suggested.
