Motion text

That this House notes that horse-riding establishments are encountering difficulty with insurance claims following accidents and in obtaining insurance cover generally following the House of Lords interpretation of the Animals Act 1971 in the case of Mirvahedy v Henley [2003] 2 AII ER 401; further notes that this decision has limited the availability of insurance and increased the cost, adversely affecting the commercial viability of the equine sector; further notes the petition of the Country Land and Business Association (CLA), which attracted 911 signatures at country shows in 2005; and supports the CLA in its calls on the Government to remedy this situation by way of legislative amendment as soon as possible.
