Treasury Committee: Protection for Homebuyers (13 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: There are certainly anomalies in the whole system. I think that there are more problems with the actual tenure of leaseholds, which makes buyers vulnerable to a range of things. Developers and freeholders then abuse the power and privilege that they have. Whether that is a matter for the FCA or not is another matter. The Minister might want to comment on that when responding. My last point...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I beg to move, That this House has considered animal rescue centres. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. Having lost two thirds of my first minute, I am pleased that my speech will go on for only 12 minutes, so I should be able to accommodate one or two colleagues who have indicated that they might wish to intervene. I am grateful for the opportunity to raise this...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I very much take the right hon. Gentleman’s point that this is not a party political issue. Indeed, most of my comments do not attack the Government but commend them for the comments and proposals they have made. However, we need to move on. He makes an interesting suggestion, and perhaps the Minister will respond to it. Animal cruelty offenders are five times more likely to have a violent...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My hon. Friend has been assiduous on this issue. I will move on to the ADCH later on and will recognise the work of the RSPCA and others.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman’s wife on her work. I mentioned four of the main organisations, but there are many across the country working in this field and I pay tribute to them all; they do fantastic work and we appreciate it. The 2018 regulations refresh the licensing regime for: selling animals as pets; dog breeding; boarding kennels; boarding for cats; home boarding for dogs; day...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My hon. Friend makes a relevant and eloquent point. I can add to his criticism of unscrupulous breeders. That problem needs to be addressed. The 2018 regulations do not address the regulation of rescue centres. The RSPCA has issued a position statement on licensing animal rescue and rehoming centres. It believes that the Government should introduce licensing of animal rescue and rehoming...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The hon. Gentleman raises a serious point. The Select Committee on which we served—he is still a distinguished member—has looked at the issue, which is troubling for welfare organisations and needs Government attention. The RSPCA believes that all rescue and rehoming centres and sanctuaries should be licensed under the animal regulations, first, to close the loophole in the third-party...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (4 Dec 2018)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My hon. Friend has much better knowledge of his local centre than I do, and the fact that he is concerned about it concerns me. I am glad that he called my speech impassioned—I am actually hastening to try to get through it, having taken a number of interventions. I hope to get to the end, and I hope the Minister understands that I may run over by a few minutes. Dogs Trust calls on the...
