Banning wild animals in circuses


I have been contacted by some constituents asking me to be present and to support the Ten Minute Rule Bill to ban wild animals in circuses.

I did attend. There was no opposition to the Bill, and it passed without a division because no-one wished to vote against it. This Bill is extremely unlikely to become law, as there will not be time made available for it.

The government has published a Bill of its own to do the same thing, following the passing of a vote in the Commons in favour of such legislation.  I have urged Ministers to complete the legislation they promised the House. I voted for the original motion.
