§ Colonel LEGGE (St. George's, Hanover Square)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that a sum of £38 7s. 6d. was realised by a sale by auction at Aldridge's on 24th April, of lost dogs seized by the police; and, if so, will he say whether this amount is in excess of the cost of the keep of the dogs during the time they have been in the hands of the police; and if so, to what purpose the balance has been applied.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) The cost of keeping the dogs at the Dogs' Home, added to the charges in connection with their sale, exceeded by £4 18s. the amount realised by their sale at auction.
