Banning Animal Snares

Constituents have contacted me about Animal Snares and the Westminster Hall debate on this subject.

I am completely opposed to the use of animal snares and have spoken out on this before now. Animal welfare remains a high priority for me, and I have consistently opposed live animal exports and long to see both practices banned.

Due to pressures on my diary, I was not free to attend yesterday’s debate in Westminster Hall, but I fully support making sure that banning snares via the Kept Animals Bill moves forward.  I would be surprised if the debate was not well attended, and the transcript of the debate can be read via this link here: Snares – Hansard – UK Parliament

I have always voted in favour of all legislation and amendments to stop the cruel treatment of animals and will continue to do so.
