§ Earl Winterton
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that there have been a number of other Questions on this subject in which attention has been called to the great damage caused to the farming community and the intense cruelty occasioned to the sheep, but that nothing has happened? There has been an astonishing absence of any statement by any of the so-called animal protection societies, who are apparently more concerned with the interests of the dogs than the poor tortured sheep. Will he circularise magistrates on the subject?
§ Mr. Bossom
Will the right hon. Gentleman inquire into the terrible situation on the Romney Marsh, Kent, where great cruelty is being caused to sheep? Attacks by tremendous numbers of dogs are still occurring. Can the right hon. Gentleman do something to stop this?
