I have been asked to reply.

I will arrange for a table showing the number of persons proceeded against at magistrates courts, under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, sections 1(3), 3(1) and 3(3), in England and Wales, from 2007 to 2010 (latest available) to be placed in the Library of the House.

Annual court proceedings data for 2011 are planned for publication in the spring of 2012.
