Support Battersea’s call for five year animal cruelty sentences

Thank you for contacting me about sentencing for offences of animal cruelty.

I am pleased that we have a robust legal framework to tackle this vicious behaviour in the Animal Welfare Act 2006, which makes it an offence to cause unnecessary suffering to any animal.

Grenfell Tower

Thank you for contacting me about the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.
 

DUP Coalition

Thank you for contacting me about the general election result.

Foxhunting

Thank you for emailing in to ask my views on fox hunting.

If re-elected I would be lobbying government for an independent review of how the current laws are working before any vote was scheduled.  

Diesel Cars

Thank you for contacting me about diesel cars.

I can assure you that Ministers are not in the business of penalising drivers who use diesel cars.

Aid Budget

Thank you for contacting me about the aid budget.
 

Offences of Animal Cruelty

Thank you for contacting me about animal welfare.

I was unable to attend the debate in the House of Commons on 30 March owing to other pressing commitments on behalf of my constituents, but I understand it was a valuable opportunity to discuss these issues.
