On Thursday 5 November MPs will take part in a debate on the dog meat trade. This debate was scheduled by the Backbench Business Committee following a bid from Robert Flello MP, Labour MP for Edmonton.
This potentially ground-breaking debate is as a result of the meeting held at the House of Commons on the 28th of January where an unprecedented 138 MPs signed an Early Day Motion (EDM) in support for action to be taken to tackle this trade.
If you haven’t already done so, please sign the petition today, calling on the UK Parliament to take vital steps to tackle this horrendous issue.
Please also take a minute to contact your local MP urging them to attend this debate. It’s time we step up now as a country and do everything we can to help the thousands of dogs – many previously loving pets – who are subjected to this barbaric trade every single day.
Please write to your MP now, urging them to attend the forthcoming debate and to support the motion calling for the UK Government to request the respective governments in Asia to end the trade.
