Fee Increase

Consultation on proposal to increase the fee to add a prohibited type dog to the Index of Exempted Dogs

Consultation starts: 26 October 2012
Consultation ends: 21 December 2012

Defra is seeking views from Wales on a proposed increase in the fee for placing a dog on the Index of Exempted Dogs.

The proposal has already been consulted upon in England as part of a package of measures aimed at tackling irresponsible ownership of dogs. However, the other proposals would apply to England only. The Index of Exempted Dogs applies to Wales as well as England.
