Vets ask MPs for animal welfare change

On April 19, as part of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Efra) Inquiry on animal welfare, The British Veterinary Association (BVA) and British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) told MPs that the Animal Welfare Act 2006, while an excellent umbrella piece of legislation, can be difficult to enforce.

The organisations have called for more resources to assist charities and local authorities as well as the introduction of secondary legislation to make clear responsibilities.
