Microchipping of Dogs

Re: Freedom of Information Request - Microchipping of Dogs
On 6 April 2016 it became compulsory for owners and keepers to ensure that their dog(s) is/are microchipped. I would like to request the following information:
1. How many owners/keepers have been served with a notice requiring them to have their dog(s) microchipped within 21 days? 2. How many owners/keepers have been charged with an offence for failing to comply with a notice requiring them to have their dog(s) microchipped within 21 days?
3. How many owners/keepers have been convicted for failing to comply with the regulation or failing to comply with a notice served under the legislation?
I would like this information from 6 April 2016 please.
Hastings Borough Council have yet to implement a procedure for the enforcement of the Micro Chipping of Dogs Legislation so no notices have been served. It will be one of our priorities to address for the coming year.
