ILPH ILPH Welcomes New Government Animal Welfare Initiative

The ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) welcomes today's
Government announcement of plans to review, modernise and simplify animal welfare
laws, some of which date back as far as 1911.

The Government, who will be consulting with animal welfare organisations, local
authorities, courts, police and industry, wish to hear views on the existing 11 Acts of
Parliament that govern the welfare of animals, with the possibility of a new animal
welfare bill, pulling together current legislation and closing loopholes.

Comments David Mountford, ILPH Operations Director, "We wholeheartedly welcome
any moves to update current animal welfare legislation, which is hopelessly outdated,
and look forward to commenting on the consultation document."
