I have been asked to reply.

So far this year, we have placed 421 dogs on the Index of Exempted Dogs through either the 4A or 4B procedures. 42 of these were under the 4A procedure and 290 under the 4B procedure. In 89 cases it has not been possible to identify under which procedure the dogs have been placed on the index because this has not been stated on the contingent destruction order issued by the court.

Does this answer the above question?
