Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill (22 Mar 2024)

Ruth Jones: ...Smith). We need to get this sorted today, because we have had Warley and Crawley, and I am not sure there is another constituency that rhymes. I thank animal welfare charities nationwide, including FOUR PAWS, Humane Society International, World Animal Protection and Ban Trophy Hunting.

Animal Welfare (Import of Dogs, Cats and Ferrets) Bill (15 Mar 2024)

Steve Reed: ...animals Bill delayed the much-needed clampdown on this vile and illegal trade. The delay has left criminals feeling emboldened during the intervening period. A recent report published by the charity Four Paws on the illegal puppy trade in the United Kingdom found that more than 30% of imported puppies were from Romania alone. That is simply unacceptable. How can it be that criminals have...

Animals (Low-Welfare Activities Abroad) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (18 Sep 2023)

Lord Black of Brentwood: ...they have given it, as well as the scrutiny, which is right and proper. Above all, I pay tribute to all the charities which have campaigned so vigorously and effectively to get us to this point.

In particular, I want to thank Save the Asian Elephants and Duncan McNair, who is with us today. I genuinely believe we would not be here debating this Bill were it not for the work that he...

Import and Sale of Fur — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (27 Jun 2023)

Alex Sobel: ...job done and promised us again that they would ban fur imports in their last manifesto in 2019. Regrettably, it seems that the opinions of the British public and experts in the field such as HSI, Four Paws, Dogs Trust, the RSPCA and Cats Protection, as well as leading international experts such as the World Organisation for Animal Health, hold little sway with the Government. Just last...

Dog and Cat Meat Trade (14 Jul 2021)

Rebecca Pow: ...soft-power way. We can see that the work being done in this House is driving change elsewhere, but in addition the Government commend the work undertaken by non-governmental organisations such as Four Paws, which is doing a lot of very good work—I was horrified to hear about the video that my hon. Friend referred to. Humane Society International is also doing very good work, as is the ...

Animal Charities: Covid-19 (19 Jan 2021)

Sir David Amess: ...targeted at directly caring for animals. I also think of our zoo in Colchester. In an already suffering industry, zoos need governmental support to make up for lost ticket revenue. The charity Four Paws was hit especially hard when it had to close its animal sanctuaries worldwide. Without the ability to fundraise on a large scale, essential welfare services will inevitably decrease and so...

Claire Perry: ... the hon. Member for Sheffield, Brightside and Hillsborough (Harry Harpham) on securing this debate, and I am delighted that it is his first debate—I still remember mine. He has big shoes and four paws to fill, and I hope he will personally pass my best wishes to his predecessor, with whom I worked and for whom I have the greatest respect. It is great to see such a strong cross-party...

Anne McIntosh: ...their work, although the following is not an exhaustive list: Blue Cross in my constituency; Battersea Dogs and Cats Home; the Dogs Trust; the Dog Rescue Federation; the wonderfully and aptly named Four Paws. I also want to pay tribute to those who fund these charities. In doing so, they are taking many stray dogs and cats off our streets. I am asking the Minister today to tackle the rogue...
