§ Mr. EVELYN CECIL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, having regard to the necessity for national economy in food and the amount of good food expended on pet dogs, such as Pekingese, Pomeranians, Yorkshire terriers, and the like, he will consider the desirability of placing a heavy annual licence of not less than £5 a head on these animals?
§ Mr. SWIFT MacNEILL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Home Secretary said a day or two ago that there was no intention whatever to attack dogs during the War, and may I ask the right hon. Gentleman if he intends to make any economic policy on these principles, whether he will begin first with curs of every description, and then with rats?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I shall consider my hon. Friend's suggestion as well as any others made to me in reference to taxation.
