§ Mr. Tim Devlin (Stockton, South)
I rise to present a petition on behalf of 16,000 signatories throughout the country. The petition has been compiled by the Pro Dogs national charity, north-east branch, and reads:To the honourable Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. The humble petitioners of Pro Dogs national charity, north-east branch and undersigned petitioners sheweth that the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 requires amendment to provide safeguards for law-abiding dog owners and their dogs. Wherefore, your petitioners pray that your honourable House amend the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 to allow discretion when considering the destruction of dogs which may be exercised on the particular facts of each case.
§ To lie upon the Table.
