HC Deb 28 July 1955 vol 544 c207W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation in view of the large proportion of fatal and less serious accidents that are directly caused by the presence of uncontrolled dogs on the highways, if he will introduce regulations to stop this loss of life.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I have no power to make regulations of the nature suggested and I doubt whether legislation is the right way to deal with this problem. I shall continue to do all I can by way of educational propaganda and I would remind my hon. Friend that paragraph 67 of the Highway Code reads—"Keep your dog under control when you take it for a walk or in your car. Do not let your dog stray."
