A number of constituents have sent me a campaign email regarding the “GizmosLegacy petition.”
I genuinely understand how important a family pet is in the homes of many people and that the loss of one can be traumatic. As a dog owner myself I have considerable sympathy for those who have faced this upset.
Regrettably the Westminster Hall debate on this issue falls on a day already fully committed and I will not be able to attend. However I will endeavour to send along a member of staff so they can follow the debate and report back.
I will also raise this issue with Ministers when I see them as whilst it raises all manner of issues and complications the matter should be carefully considered.
