I beg to move amendment No. 179, in clause 32, page 16, line 44, leave out subsections (3) and (4) and insert

‘(3)In giving directions which specify the manner in which an animal is to be disposed of, the court may not direct the disposal of an animal to any person except—

(a)a licensed breeding establishment,

(b)a licensed pet shop,

(c)a licensed Scottish rearing establishment,

(d)a veterinary surgeon, or

(e)any other person of who the court is satisfied has the appropriate training and qualification in, and experience of, animal welfare.’.
