RSPCA urges government to pass Animal Welfare Bill

In early February, the Bill passed the committee stage in the House of Commons -now RSPCA hopes the Bill can complete its legislative journey before the end of this UK parliamentary session

The RSPCA is urging government parties in both England and Wales to pass a bill that will see animal abusers maximum prison sentence rise from six months to five years. 

Currently, the Welsh government has laid a legislative consent memorandum (LCM) which would allow provisions in the Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill, a Westminster Private Members’ Bill sponsored by Chris Loder MP, to apply to Wales too.
