Parrots: Animal Welfare

Volume 506: debated on Monday 1 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the answer of 23 February 2010, Official Report, column 394W, on parrots: animal welfare, if he will bring forward proposals to establish minimum cage sizes and standards for parrots. (319256)

We consider that the requirements of the Animal Welfare Act 2006 to provide for the welfare need of animals, including a suitable environment, are sufficient to ensure the proper welfare of pet parrots. Therefore we have no plans to bring forward further proposals.
