Animal Welfare: Codes of Practice

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what assessment his Department has made of the responses to the consultation on codes of practice for the welfare of (a) dogs and (b) cats; and when he expects to publish his conclusions on the consultation. (251075)

The responses to the consultation on the codes of practice for the welfare of cats and dogs have enabled my Department to make a number of changes to the codes which I consider will make them more useful to owners and keepers.

All of the responses together with accompanying analyses will be made available to the public shortly.
