HC Deb 24 June 1986 vol 100 c121W
Mr. Dover

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what lessons have been learnt from the trial period of dog licences at £5 per annum introduced in 1985.

Dr. Boyson

[pursuant to his reply, 9 June 1986, c. 84]: Since the incidence of dog nuisance was more acute in Northern Ireland than in Great Britain, the introduction of this order has been welcomed as a positive move in lessening the problem.
