HC Deb 04 July 1950 vol 477 cc15-6W
53. Mr. Murray

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware of the dissatisfaction in the County of Durham about the present method of taking out dog licences; that many people have received intimation that unless they pay the mitigated penalties in the notice within ten days, a summons will be taken out against them; and if he will consider in future giving due notice to owners of dogs when their licence is due similar to the method adopted for wireless licence and Income Tax.

Sir S. Cripps

Certain representations have been received on this matter from persons in the county of Durham. but the action taken by the county council is within their discretion and I am not in a position to intervene.
