HC Deb 12 April 1961 vol 638 c30W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what quarantine kennels are being used by the Metropolitan Police for the reception of imported police dogs; whether these kennels are hired, purchased or specially constructed, and at what cost this is done; how many adult dogs can be accommodated at any one time; and how many were there at the last convenient date.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The Metropolitan Police have ten kennels which can be used for quarantine purposes. The kennels, which also serve other purposes, cost a little over £3,200 to adapt. There are no dogs in quarantine at present.
