The Board do not receive any Return as to stray dogs seized under the provisions of their Orders and the Dogs' Act, and they are not, therefore, in a position to supply the information desired by my hon. Friend.

83. Major DAVIES

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture if he will state what arrangements have been made with the Home Office regarding the enforcement of the Regulations relating to the suppression of rabies; whether any instructions have been given to the police; and whether any bonus has been offered to police constables for taking into custody any stray dogs in their respective areas?


It was not necessary to make any arrangement with the Home Office on this matter. By Section 43 of the Diseases of Animals Act, 1894, the police force of each police area execute and enforce the Act and every Order issued there under. The Board have no information on the latter part of the question.
