HC Deb 05 June 1990 vol 173 c415W
Mr. Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has received any recent representations on the theft of pet cats, for use in fur coats, animal experimentation and pit-bull baiting.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

I have received several recent representations on the alleged theft of pet cats. The representations have expressed general concern about the fate of the pets concerned, in particular their use in the fur trade.
