A number of people have contacted DDAWatch regarding the meaning of part of the Defra consultation.
The query relates to questions in Option 3: Repeal of the 1997 Dangerous Dogs Act to prevent any more dogs being added to the Index
The specific confusion is focused on what is meant by question 11 which states:
Do you think removing the the exemption introduced by the 1997 amendment would allow a more effective enforcement of the current dangerous dogs legislation?
If the exemption introduced in 1997 amendment was removed it would mean that all dogs deemed to be a banned type would not be allowed to be registered and instead, would only be allowed to be destroyed.
If you have misunderstood the question please contact defra and ask for advice on how to address the issue. Please do contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unsure of any questions meaning and we will explain if we know the answer or find out for you.
