Motion text

That this House notes that horse-riding establishments continue to encounter 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 campaign initiated in 2005 by the Country Land and Business Association to have the Animals Act amended; and urges the Government to resolve this issue as soon as possible.
