Motion text

That this House recognises the support both within and without Parliament for the Animals Act (Amendment) Bill brought forward by the hon. Member for Preseli, Pembrokeshire; notes the unfairness resulting from the House of Lords' decision in the case of Mirvahedy versus Henley (2003) under which the keepers of animals can be held liable for incidents they could not have anticipated; supports the Bill's purpose to ensure the Animals Act 1971 adequately reflects Parliament's original intention; and calls on the Government to extend the scope of the draft Marine Bill to include the provisions of the Animals Act 1971 (Amendment) Bill.
