§ Dr. Julian Lewis
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what his policy is on the provision by local police forces of temporary kennels for stray dogs collected by local authority dog wardens. 
§ Mr. Denham
The provision of temporary kennels for stray dogs by the police is a local matter determined individually by each police force. The Policing Bureaucracy Taskforce recommended that this function may transfer to local authorities. The proposals are being discussed in consultation with the relevant stakeholders.
