Dogs Act (Amendment) Bill. – in the House of Commons on 15th June 1928.
I beg to move, in page 1, to leave oat from the word "therefor" in line 20 to the end of the Clause, and to insert instead thereof the words:
"4.—(1) Any person (in this section referred to as 'the finder') who takes possession of a stray dog shall forthwith either—
(2) Where a dog has been so taken to a police-station then—
This Amendment is supported by a number of those interested in dogs, including the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, of which the hon. and gallant Member for Ayr Burghs (Lieutenant-Colonel Moore) is a member of the Council, the National Canine Defence League, the chairman of which is the hon. Member for Central Hackney (Sir R. Gower) and the Glasgow Dogs' Home, the vice-chairman of which is my hon. Friend the Member for the Maryhill Division of Glasgow (Mr. Coupes). I will not weary the Committee by explaining it, because this is absolutely an agreed Bill.
