§ Phil Sawford
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how many greyhounds have bee collected by local authority dog wardens in each year since 2000. 
§ Alun Michael
Under section 149(8) of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, local authority dog wardens are required to keep a register containing the prescribed particulars of, or relating, to dogs seized and the register shall be available, at all reasonable times, for inspection by the public free of charge. However, we do not collect that data centrally as there is no requirement for it to be supplied to Government.
