HC Deb 15 June 1950 vol 476 c25W
57. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will give the number of cases of sheep-worrying in Warwickshire to date in 1950; and what steps he is taking to prevent this loss to the farming community.

Mr. T. Williams

I am informed that 59 cases of sheep-worrying by dogs in Warwickshire have been reported to the police during the present year, and that 62 sheep have been killed or injured. In reply to the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to the hon. Member for Maidstone (Mr. Bossom) on 18th May, 1950.
