Motion text

That this House recognises that dogs are not a commodity and should be bought only from licensed breeders; notes that puppies sold in pet shops or by other third parties are almost exclusively bred on puppy farms; and, given the fact the Pet Animals Act 1951 is out of date, calls on the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to ensure that secondary legislation to the Animal Welfare Act 2006 prohibits the sale of puppies in pet shops.
