With your permission, Mr. Speaker, I beg to present a humble petition on behalf of the citizens of Beaconsfield, nationwide playgroups and others. The petition has the support of the League for the Introduction of Canine Control. The league wants to see the introduction of measures to reduce dog nuisance, in particular an increase in the licence fee and a national dog warden service. It wants the fouling of pavements to be made an offence everywhere.

The petitioners pray that your honourable House do all in its power to support any amendment to the law to require dogs owners' to remove excrement deposited by their pets from pavements, pathways, parks, grass verges, beaches and common land.And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c.

To lie upon the Table.
