HC Deb 11 July 1983 vol 45 cc258-9W
Mr. Greg Knight

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is satisfied with the workings of the Dangerous Wild Animals Act 1976; and if he has received any representations in connection therewith.

Mr. Waldegrave

The Act is in general working satisfactorily. My Department has received representations from the Association of Circus Proprietors about difficulties in obtaining licences from local authorities to take animals to venues outside their circuses.
