Motion text

That this House notes the recent survey of 2,000 cat and dog owners in the UK by More Than insurance, which showed that 78 per cent of British gardens contain plants that are toxic to cats and dogs; is concerned that 31 per cent of respondents did not realise that their pets can become poisoned by eating or even simply brushing against these and other plants and flowers commonly found in many gardens or as cut flowers or plants in the home; and calls on producers, suppliers, retailers and the Government to work together to ensure the clear labelling of seeds, plants and cut flowers to show consumers whether an item is safe or harmful to cats and dogs, a measure supported by the RSPCA, the Cats' Protection League and 86 per cent of cat and dog owners.
