NDWA CO-SIGNS LETTER URGING GOVERNMENT TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF DOG CONTROL AND DANGEROUS DOGS

Fri, 20 Apr 2012

Downing Street, Wednesday 11th April 2012.

The NDWA along with RSPCA, Blue Cross, Battersea Cat's & Dogs Home, the Joint Central Committee of the Police Federation of England & Wales and the Communication Workers Union all signed a letter that was handed in to the Prime Minister's Office at 10 Downing Street by Angela McGlynn and John Massey, the parents of John-Paul Massey.

The handing in of the letter was arranged by Luciania Berger, Labour and Co-operative Member of Parliament for Liverpool Wavertree .

The letter reminds Mr Cameron that both his party as well as the Coalition Government both promised to address the issues of dangerous dogs and dog control legislation.

An announcement is long overdue and hopefully the government will make one soon.

NDWA hopes that any announcement will reflect the need for appropriate control of dangerous dogs and the promotion of responsible dog ownership for the benefit of public safety and animal welfare.

A further concern of NDWA is that Local Authorities are scaling down Dog Warden Services when there is a clear and present need for education and enforcement to promote responsible dog ownership in the community.
