§ Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when the present charge of 7s. 6d. for a dog licence was fixed; and what is the equivalent charge today, taking into account the fall in the value of the £ sterling.
§ Mr. Anthony Stodart
The present duty of 7s. 6d. on a dog licence was fixed in 1878. This would be equivalent, at today's values, to approximately £2 5s.
