Dog control laws adequate - former minister

The architect of current dog control laws believes they are comprehensive and says anyone with suggestions on how to improve them should lobby Local Government Minister Rodney Hide.

Chris Carter is now an independent MP but in 2003 was local government minister in the Labour-led government when Parliament passed his Dog Control Amendment Bill with overwhelming support. It included measures such as microchipping all puppies, banning certain breeds, increasing dog control officers' abilities to enter properties and increasing fines.
