Chris has been delighted to have played a part in ensuring that ‘Lucy’s Law’ has now become a reality. 'Lucy's Law' will finally bring an end to the unscrupulous breeding of Dogs and Cats in this country and also put an end to Puppy Smuggling from overseas.
He offered his congratulations to TV Vet Marc Abraham who has campaigned for years on this subject .
Chris said: "We are a country of animal lovers and now it has been made more important that when purchasing a puppy or kitten you actually know where it comes from, see the mother and see its breeding environment. Third party sales have not worked. And This is a law for England only but let’s hope that the Welsh Assembly will follow shortly."
Chris spoke at an event in the Commons over two years ago on this subject and is therefore delighted that it has finally been passed.
