Motion text

That this House recognises the efforts of Richard Ackers and the Justice for Reggie Campaign in seeking to protect the well-being of domestic animals; supports their call for more stringent laws on the breeding, transportation and sale of those animals, particularly with regard to unregulated puppy farming and illegal online sales of puppies by unscrupulous breeders; welcomes licensing for all sellers in order to eradicate cruel and unusual breeding methods and to eliminate such inhumane practices as ear cropping; recognises the need for host sites and seller channels to take verified and true identification of each seller prior to listing and to provide traceable provenance for each animal thus advertised and sold; believes in mandatory registration and independent regulation for all animal rescue centres so that such unchecked sales cannot take place under the guise of an animal welfare organisation; and urges the UK Government to promptly enact those necessary changes in order to significantly reduce the risk of harm for each of those living creatures.
