star this property answer text <p>Where a dog is worrying livestock, police and local authorities, with the consent of the local police, can pursue a prosecution under the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953. This provides a criminal offence where a keeper has allowed their dog to worry livestock and carries a maximum fine of £1000. Defra and the Animal Health and Welfare Board for England (AHWBE) met police forces, farming and rural interests to discuss this issue earlier this year. Under the auspices of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, five police forces are collaborating to pilot more systematic data collection of incidents and good response practices and we look forward to the results of the pilot.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Since the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights' statement on 11 September, our Ambassador has raised the situation in Rakhine with Burmese Ministers and has set out our concerns about the violence, the large scale displacement of civilians, and the need for improved humanitarian access. The Foreign Secretary had earlier spoken to State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi on 7 September in similar terms and to underline the need for any allegations of human rights abuses to be investigated. Subsequently, at his press conference on 14 September, the Foreign Secretary described the situation in Rakhine as an “abomination”, and urged the displaced Rohingya to be allowed back and for the abuse of their human rights and killings to stop.</p> more like this
