§ MR. BUCHANAN (Aberdeenshire, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether, in view of the complaints of sheep worrying, particularly from Scotland, he will press forward at an early date his Bill on the subject.
§ MR. AKERS DOUGLAS (for Mr. LONG)
I should be very glad indeed if an early opportunity were to present itself for the consideration of the Dogs Regulation Bill, in support of which I have received many representations from local authorities and agricultural societies; but, as the hon. Member is aware, the decision of such questions does not rest with me, and it has to be taken in view of the other demands upon the time of the House.
