asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how many prosecutions were taken out during 1979 against persons for failing to have a dog licence.
So far as England and Wales are concerned, I am advised by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department that the information requested for 1979 is not yet available. Information for 1978 is published in table 1(a) of "Criminal Statistics, England and Wales, 1978"—Cmnd. 7670.
