asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give instructions to officers in command of military camps in Wales to see that no dogs are allowed to be kept in these camps unless under official control and responsibility, in view of the heavy losses of sheep caused by dogs from these camps; and who is responsible for meeting the claims for damages?

Instructions were issued in June in order to limit the number of dogs kept in military camps and to ensure that they were subjected to proper control by their owners. I am not aware that any further instructions are at present called for. The answer to the last part of the Question depends on the circumstance in each case.
