Government publish third party sales consultation response 24th December 2018

DEFRA has published its response on proposals to ban 3rd party sales of puppies and kittens in England.

DEFRA said it received 6,854 responses to this consultation, “…the overwhelming majority of which supported the government’s proposal to ban commercial third-party sales of puppies and kittens.”

As a consequence, DEFRA confirmed they will proceed with the ban.  It is not clear when the necessary legislation will be brought forward but the Government said it will be “when parliamentary time allows.”  

It also said it will continue to engage with stakeholders on the proposal to licence rescue and rehoming organisations.
