We are pleased to announce Neil Parish MP, Chairman of the EFRA Committee has secured a Commons Main Chamber debate this Thursday 30th March, 2017 at 11.30am. There are two vital animal welfare issues being debated:

1: Banning the sale of puppies via third parties
2: Increasing the maximum custodial sentence for animal cruelty

We are now calling on the public to write to their own MP urging them to attend this vital debate. Many MPs stated during the Pup Aid petition debate in September 2014 that they had received a record number of constituent emails – let’s ensure the same thing happens for this debate.

We have placed below a template letter for you to use. You can obtain your MP contact details at the Find Your MP link, alternatively you can write to your MP via the automated Write To Them website.
