Petition - Proposal to Sell Quibell Fields: Livestock Worrying: Sussex (17 Apr 2018)

George Eustice: ...who represent urban seats showing a keen interest in rural issues. Members representing urban seats are always welcome to our debates that mainly affect rural areas.

Friend the Member for Lewes (Maria Caulfield)...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (27 Jun 2017)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: ...that is invaluable at risk. However, that is not the topic on which I want to address the House tonight. I wish to say a few words about the constitutional situation of Wales in consequence of the Wales Act 2017. Following that legislation, the position of Wales is far less satisfactory and far less certain—and indeed, far less authoritative constitutionally than it was previous to...

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime andPolicing Bill — Report (2nd Day) (14 Jan 2014)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: ...try to set the Government’s position in some context. As noble Lords will know, I was a Minister in Defra—and, indeed, had quite a lot to do with some of the early talks about how to deal with dogs and the dangers that out-of-control dogs present not only to postmen and people visiting houses but to people going about their daily lives. While it is true that some organisations,...

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (2 Dec 2013)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: ...-Barnes for moving this amendment and other noble Lords for their contributions. The purpose of the amendment is to extend the definition of “dangerously out of control”, found in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 and used to determine whether an offence has been committed under Section 3 of that Act. It would read so that the owner or person in charge of the dog would be liable for...

Public Bill Committee: Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill: Examination of Witnesses (20 Jun 2013)

...us the chance to give evidence. Probably, we would like to start with a clean sheet of paper. We would like a consolidated Bill. At the moment, there is the Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005, the Environmental Protection Act 1990, the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, amended in 1997, and, again, another proposal to amend here. There is also the Dogs Act 1871 and now the Anti-social...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Dog Control and Welfare (13 Jun 2013)

David Heath: ...common ground, is consolidation of legislation. I perfectly understand the argument that it is nice to have a neat legislative bundle with everything that relates to a particular subject. The fact is that English and Welsh law is not like that, and never has been. It is quite difficult to achieve, and we have sometimes found that consolidated legislation misses out important elements of...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953 (11 Mar 2013)

David Heath: Under the Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953, it is an offence to allow a dog to worry livestock. The maximum penalty is a fine not exceeding level 3 (£1,000) on the standard scale. This is reinforced by the Animals Act 1971 which states that where a dog causes damage by killing or injuring livestock, the keeper of the dog is liable for the damage. I am aware that the definition of...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Dangerous Dogs (6 Jul 2011)

Simon Hart: ...for the right reasons in Westminster Hall or the main Chamber—but one issue does concern me. There has been much reference to evidence and statistics that suggest an increase in attacks by dangerous dogs or, indeed, by dogs. Is that a trend with evidence to which the Minister can refer us, or is there simply a greater awareness or reporting of such incidents? Is there perhaps greater...

Dog Control Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (4 Mar 2011)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, Amendment 17 repeals the Dangerous Dogs Act 1989. The Act amends the Dogs Act 1871, which is already repealed under my Bill. This is an important measure because it tidies up pieces of legislation. From the Government's point of view, we are not introducing an additional piece of legislation; we are introducing one but repealing three. That is totally in line with the purpose of the...
