§ Mr. Wiggin
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when and in what form he proposes to amend the legislation on dog licensing.
§ Mr. Moynihan
I have been asked to reply.
Clause 32 of the Local Government Bill would have the effect of abolishing the duty on dog licences in Great Britain, and part IV of schedule 6 to the Bill would repeal the various references to dog licences which would be redundant on abolition of the duty. The Bill is currently being considered by Standing Committee A.
