HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 c1871
31. Mr. Alport

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to amend the law so as to include an insurance element in the annual dog licence, by means of which it would be possible for anyone sustaining injury or damage to property arising from the action of a dog, to obtain appropriate compensation.

Mr. R. A. Butler

While this is the time of year when I examine all possibilities and contingencies, I must not unduly arouse the hopes of my hon. Friend.
