§ 132. Mr. E. Fletcher
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he is aware of the nuisance and danger arising from allowing dogs to roam without control in congested traffic areas in Central London; and what steps he is taking in the matter.
§ Mr. Watkinson
Section 15 of the Road Traffic Act, 1956, empowers local authorities to designate roads in their areas where dogs must be kept on a lead. Such orders are subject to my confirmation. No local authority in Central London has yet proposed to make use of this power.
