Scottish Parliament: Dog Control Legislation (9 Jan 2014)

Christine Grahame: ...which he narrated. I note that the First Minister sat through Paul Martin’s speech and I welcome the First Minister’s establishment of the consultative forum on how to reduce, if not eliminate, dog attacks. Such attacks are horrendous and avoidable. I stress that they are the fault not of the animal but of the owner. Under the Control of Dogs (Scotland) Act 2010, we shifted to...

Scottish Parliament: Control of Dogs (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (10 Feb 2010)

Christine Grahame: ...mentioned, particularly on costs, as I was not in a position to do that in my opening speech. Local authorities will play an integral part in enforcing the bill, but they already carry out many dog-related duties under the Dog Fouling (Scotland) Act 2003, the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 and various pieces of animal health and welfare legislation. They have to be staffed...

Written Ministerial Statements — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill (Stray Dogs) (22 Mar 2005)

Alun Michael: The intended impact of the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill in regard to stray dogs is to achieve clarity and consistency in the way stray dog services are delivered. This statement is intended to explain how that will be achieved and address concerns raised with me by animal welfare charities. The current situation is unsatisfactory because under under section 149 of the...

Public Bill Committee: Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill: Schedule 5 - Repeals (1 Feb 2005)

Anne McIntosh: This is a small point, but I notice from page 94 that the whole of the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996, and substantial sections of the Dogs Act 1906, the Dogs (Amendment) Act 1928 and the Local Government Act 1988 are to be repealed. I should be interested to know what discussions the Minister has had recently with the groups representing the interests of dogs and dog wardens to discuss the...

Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill (10 Jan 2005)

Derek Conway: ...charity in Britain. I am delighted to see the hon. Member for Broxtowe (Dr. Palmer) in his place. He is a distinguished supporter of cat protection. However, the subject of my remarks tonight is dogs. As a result of my work with cats, I have frequently come into contact with the dog welfare charities in our country, particularly the larger ones, such as the Dogs Trust and the Kennel Club....

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Stray Dogs (23 Jan 2003)

Alun Michael: Section 149 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 requires every local authority to appoint an officer to deal with stray dogs. In addition, under section 3(8) of the Dogs Act 1906, the local authority officer, police, or any other person having charge of a stray dog, are required to feed and maintain a dog until the owner has been given a reasonable opportunity to claim it back. Also,...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Rural Affairs: Rural Affairs (14 Oct 1999)

Scottish Executive officials receive on a quarterly basis, reports of breaches of the legislation that are referred by the appropriate enforcement authority to the Procurator Fiscal for consideration. The incidence...

Hydatidosis Control (3 Mar 1992)

Alan Meale: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to prohibit dogs being fed on raw meat and offal derived from fallen or casualty livestock; and for connected purposes. I welcome the opportunity to introduce the Bill, to highlight the fact that dogs fed on raw meat and offal from fallen livestock are a major source of a disease that not only costs the farm and meat industries millions of...

Orders of the Day — Local Government Bill: Dog Registration Scheme (9 Mar 1988)

Christopher Chope: ...(Mr. Hughes). We cannot accept the amendment that he moved because, in effect, it asks for powers that at present are permissive to be made mandatory. The power of the police to deal with stray dogs has been discretionary since the Dogs Act 1906 because it is essential for the police to be flexible in dealing with different cases. It may not always be necessary to seize a dog which appears...

Orders of the Day — Cornwall County Council Bill [Lords] (25 Jul 1984)

Mr Robin Corbett: We are still left with the problem of how those intending to go on holiday in Cornwall will know which beaches they can visit with dogs and which they cannot. I have no statistics of how many holidaymakers visiting Cornwall take dogs with them. I readily accept the point that the hon. Gentleman makes about the problem that arises for holidaymakers who do not own dogs as a result of the...

Orders of the Day — Local Government and Planning (Scotland) Bill: Dogs Control (4 May 1982)

Mr Albert McQuarrie: ...been assured by the Leader of the House that the Secretary of State for Defence will come to the House this evening to make a statement, it is only fair to endeavour to proceed, in spite of the fact that there is nothing less important on our minds than the Local Government and Planning (Scotland) Bill, and the amendments and new clauses to it. So until the Minister arrives, it is only...

Dogs (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Feb 1982)

Mr William Rees-Davies: ...his lead when he visited Selfridges sale. Unfortunately, he was very nearly seduced by a number of shoppers. Because of his seductive powers, I had to put him on a lead. In Thanet, we do not have dogs on the beaches in the summer because we do not want the beaches fouled. However, in the winter Toby and other dogs go unaccompanied along Thanet's beaches and they cause no harm. Therefore,...

Dogs (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill (19 Feb 1982)

Mr Jack Aspinwall: .... I know that the NFU wants the Bill to go much further and to make the scheme mandatory upon all local authorities, with the Secretary of State deciding exceptions. Licence fees for working farm dogs have been in force for over a century. I shall be prepared to institute an amendment if the Bill reaches Committee. I know that it is a privilege that is highly valued by the farming...

Police Authorities (Powers): Dogs (14 Nov 1979)

Mr Marcus Fox: My hon. Friend is not correct. It would need legislation. I was talking about dogs and irresponsible owners. We know that many families nowadays are working and that their children are at school. Dogs are turned out for the whole day. It does not need much imagination to visualise what happens during the day. Perhaps our rising standards of amenity and public hygiene have something to do...

Mr Robin Turton: I beg to move Amendment No. 1, in page 2, line 20, at end add: (2) If the damages claimed in an action under this section do not exceed £25, a court of summary jurisdiction may, after convicting a person of an offence in respect of failure to control the dog, order him to pay damages up to such an amount to the owner of the livestock. The Amendment seeks to remedy the one blemish on a good...

Clause 1: Charge of Import Deposits (3 Dec 1968)

Sir John Foster: ...advanced a very interesting argument. He said, "It is called a duty in the Bill, but it is not really a duty. It has been called a duty for technical reasons." The technical reason is that the Act of 1968 requires it to be called a duty for the purposes of the Ways and Means Resolution. 6.15 p.m. There are many occasions in ordinary life and in law where a certain rule lays down that...

Orders of the Day — Parliament Bill (20 Sep 1948)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: ...be addressed to hon. Members a little lower down the Gangway. The first Bill was important, and so is the second—I do not regard it as paltry or at all pettifogging—and just as the Liberal Act before the first world war settled the question of the final seat of authority in Parliament. this Bill after the second world war gives a majority Government for the first time a reasonable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture.: Bad Meat and Offal (Disposal). (7 Aug 1941)

Mr. Hudson: I have ascertained that the prosecution was taken by the police under Section 6 of the Dogs Act, 1906, which makes it an offence to permit the carcase of any cattle, horse, sheep, pig, etc., to remain unburied in any field to which dogs can gain access. The carcase which was found to be lying close to a hedge adjoining the public road must have been there for several days in view...

Orders of the Day — Rabbits Bill. (7 Mar 1930)

Mr Ernest Bennett: ...as far as fire-arms are concerned, between September 1st and Christmas or the end of December? There is one other matter I must mention. Picture a county borough sending some gunner, accompanied by dogs, with strong chasing proclivities, into covers or even into roots. You can imagine what would be the result of his blazing about in early September or October and the effect on the...
