Olivia Blake: Q Thank you; that is very useful.

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: I have a question about the list of exempted dogs in clause 39(2)(b). Do you have a view on whether that list of dogs might be too broad given that it includesQ “a working gun dog or a pack of hounds”, and given their use in the countryside? Rob or Minette?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Q I have some quick-fire questions. I am intrigued, because breeding seems to be quite contentious, given some of the written evidence we have received and evidence we have heard today. I have some very technical questions. How effective are contraceptive methods—the Bill refers to “temporary contraceptive measures”—and how long is average gestation for a primate?

Olivia Blake: Q How effective are the contraceptive methods?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Probably not 100% then, based on humans?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Q One contention is the concern about licensing individuals and the risk. You mentioned that one benefit is for breeding programmes, but others, including the British Veterinary Association, which provided written evidence, seem quite concerned about the risk in allowing that to continue. Do you think there is an issue around that? Finally, do you feel that the length of time for the...

Olivia Blake: With the local authority, but not with a vet.

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Every two years, not annually.

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Q So it is not annual. Would you prefer it to be annual? Is six years too long?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Q Is six years too long for a licence to be granted?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: I am very interested in and intrigued by this issue; I have a background in local government, so I understand how difficult it is at the moment to take part in these schemes and things like them. What do you think that Government would need to provide to allow local authorities to be able to enforce the licensing part of keeping primates as petsQ ?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Q That is certainly true on enforcement for things such as tobacco, interestingly. I know that you have suggested that this measure is pretty unworkable and will not achieve what needs to be achieved, but once somebody has got a licence and they need to go for the veterinary checks, do you think there are enough qualified vets in the UK at the moment to be able to do these checks...

Olivia Blake: Q Would you also be concerned about the transportation of primates around the country in order to find those vets?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Q Thank you. I have two more questions on the importation of dogs, if that is okay. First, what provision do you need to see at Border Force level in order to implement these changes and ensure adequate checks?

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of witnesses (9 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: Q That is very helpful. I was interested in what you were saying about mutilation and rehoming in the UK. I should probably declare that I own a dog that has a docked tail, who I rehomed. Are you concerned about people who do not have any evidence that they genuinely rehomed an animal that already had a mutilation? Will they be caught out, not having been in any way involved in the...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (2 Nov 2021)

Olivia Blake: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Herefordshire (Bill Wiggin). I think that must have been a record for the number of times cider has been mentioned in a Budget speech. In November 2010, I was outside this place in Parliament Square. Alongside tens of thousands of students, I was marching in protest against the coalition Government’s decision to raise the cap on tuition...
