HC Deb 18 July 1960 vol 627 cc6-7W
55. Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food which police forces have applied to open quarantine kennels for imported dogs during the last two years; in what manner such kennels will be subject to the existing quarantine regulations; and who will ensure that these regulations are enforced.

Mr. Hare

Applications have been received during the past two years from the Metropolitan Police, the Durham County Constabulary and the Lancashire County Constabulary. The Metropolitan Police kennels have been approved and in the other two cases approval awaits the completion of the kennels.

My Ministry's requirements for the construction and conduct of police quarantine kennels are the same as for other quarantine kennels, and the fulfilment of these requirements is ensured by the police themselves and by my officers.
