HC Deb 03 July 1919 vol 117 cc1209-10W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture if the Regulations regarding the transfer of dogs can be modified so that owners can take them to different parts of the country subject to the production of a certificate from a veterinary surgeon that they are free from rabies?


A certificate of a veterinary surgeon that a dog is free front rabies does not imply that the dog may not have been exposed to infection and is: no guarantee that the dog may not ha passing through the period of incubation. It cannot be accepted, therefore, as an alternative to control of movement.
