HC Deb 26 January 1970 vol 794 c278W
Mr. Anderson

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will allow a reasonable period of grace for the renewal of dog licences as is done with television licences.

Mr. Mackie

We are not able to do this under the current legislation, the Dog Licences Act, 1959, but a possible amendment of the law is being considered.
