HC Deb 22 June 1993 vol 227 c79W
Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to introduce tougher sentences for offenders contravening anti-rabies laws; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Maclean

The maximum penalty for offences under the Rabies (Importation of Dogs, Cats and Other Mammals) Order 1974 is an unlimited fine and/or 12 months' imprisonment. We have no plans to increase it.
