HC Deb 12 April 1956 vol 551 cc31-2W
65. Mr. G. Jeger

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will take steps to amend Section 6 of the Finance Act, 1908, so as to impose upon county councils an obligation to send out postal reminders to holders of dog licences reminding them of the need for renewal prior to the date of expiry.

Mr. H. Brooke
