§ Mr. Stallard
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider introducing legislation along the lines suggested by the Alsatian Dog League in its recently printed Guard Dog Charter, a coy of which has been sent to him; and if he will make a statement.
§ Dr. Summerskill
My right hon. Friends the Home Secretary and the Secretary of State for Scotland are considering the preparation of a code of practice for the training and use of guard dogs by security organisations, and all suggestions will be carefully considered. They have no present plans to introduce legislation on this subject.
