HC Deb 26 November 1979 vol 974 cc465-6W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services, if, in the interests of health education, he will take steps to publicise the dangers of toxocara canis and the advisability of worming dogs.

Sir George Young

The Health Education Council leaflet "You And Your Pet" lists diseases to guard against, including toxocara infection, and states specifically that all dogs should be wormed regularly.
