HC Deb 06 July 1925 vol 186 cc42-3
95. Sir H. NIELD

asked the Minister of Transport what are the regulations of the underground and other suburban railways of London with reference to the conveyance of dogs in passenger coaches or compartments; whether he is aware that the comfort of passengers is seriously interfered with by reason of quarrelsome dogs meeting in these public conveyances, particularly when not effectively controlled; and will he cause inquiry to be made and, if necessary, Regulations made to deal with the nuisance?

Colonel ASHLEY

The railway companies byelaws provide, in effect, that dogs shall not be taken into carriages except with the permission of the company, and that they shall be removed on the request of passengers therein. The underground railway companies inform me that they have not noticed the occurrence of incidents such as those to which my right hon. and learned Friend refers, and that they have never received any complaint on the subject.


Will the right hon. Gentleman apply the same rule to quarrelsome passengers?
