§ 52. Mr. Forrest
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the increase in sheep and livestock worrying, he will take steps to increase the dog-licence fee from 5s. to £5.
§ Mr. Diamond
The dog licence fee in England, Wales and Scotland is 7s. 6d. An increase of the order suggested by the hon. Member would bear hardly on many 197W dog owners; and I doubt whether it would be effective in dealing with the problem which he has in mind.
