Orders of the Day — Animals Act 1971 (Amendment) Bill — 14 Mar 2008 at 14:13

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

The purpose of this Bill is to bring clarity to an area of law that has been beset with controversy and confusion in recent years, leading to enormous negative practical consequences for interested parties. I am talking about the legal framework for the application of civil liability in respect of damage done by animals, and in particular the application of strict liability in cases where non-dangerous animals have caused injury or damage. I am talking about animals such as horses, ponies and cows, rather than tigers or snakes.

Question put accordingly, That the Bill be now read a Second time.

The House divided: Ayes 26, Noes 1.
