§ 55. Mr. Anstruther-Gray
asked the Minister of Agriculture the average expense incurred owing to quarantine regulations in importing a dog of medium size into the United Kingdom?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
The fees charged by veterinary surgeons in charge of quarantine kennels for the detention of an imported dog for the prescribed period of six months' quarantine and by the carrying agents for the conveyance of the dog thereto from the port of landing are matters for arrangement between the owner of the dog and the veterinary surgeon and carrying agent. They vary with the size of the dog and with the particular requirements of the owner, and it would not be possible to give a figure representing the average expense.
