Allotments (Damage by Animals).

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture. – in the House of Commons on 2nd July 1942.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Donald Scott:

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the damage done to allotments by the trespass of animals, he will consider extending Defence Regulation 62AA to include horses, cattle and sheep?

Mr. Hudson:

No, Sir. The question of straying dogs on allotments, which is dealt with by Defence Regulation 62AA, is not entirely analogous to trespass of horses, cattle and sheep. The existing remedies under Common Law are available, and I propose to make an Order under Defence Regulation 55 dealing specifically with straying livestock in certain specified areas where they are causing serious damage to crops on allotments and elsewhere.

Mr. Scott:

Is the Minister aware that his reply will give great satisfaction to allotment holders?
