HC Deb 27 July 1979 vol 971 c658W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what would be the estimated cost of providing a dog registration and control scheme such that stray dogs could be eliminated and regular worming of dogs could be ensured.

Mr. Fox

No figures are available. The general question of identification of dogs and of de-worming was referred to in the report of the interdepartmental working party on dogs, published in 1976. The Government have this under consideration.
