Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs: Ports: DAERA Support — Pet Passports (18 Jan 2021)

Edwin Poots: I thank the Member for his question. Pet travel is a vexed issue. This just should not be happening. I consider it cruel to put pets through the administering of unnecessary medication.

We have a common travel area for the people of the British Isles, and, in my...
