§ Mr. Peter Rees
[pursuant to his reply 14 February, c. 803]: The figures for the last three years are as follows:
will list in the Official Report the Acts of Parliament, and amendments, orders and regulations under which Government officers, the police and local government employers have powers to investigate complaints from members of the public of suspected cruelty to animals on either private or public property; and under which Acts there are powers to enter private property without a warrant to investigate allegations of cruelty to animals.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
The first three of these Acts provide powers of entry without warrant on to private property in certain instances.
