§ 40. Sir B. Janner
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will now, by legislation or otherwise, ensure that adequate security is provided against dangerous wild animals kept as pets by private individuals so that incidents of these animals, such as pumas, cobras and an alligator escaping and thus causing danger to life and limb and also placing burdens on public funds, shall be avoided.
