Finn's Law went through Committee

Finn’s Law went through Committee today and had unanimous cross party and Government support, including from the Herts MPs from Stevenage (Stephen McPartland) and Hemel Hempstead (Sir Mike Penning). Finn attended Committee with my constituent Dog Handler and Herts PC Dave Wardell and Finn’s Law campaign manager Sarah Dixon. I aim to have the Bill back in the Chamber for Third reading on 8th February, so the Animal Welfare (Service Animals) Bill is well on the way to becoming law and providing public recognition in law for our brave service animals for the first time. This is a change in the law which is happening internationally and across the UK. We also had the chance to discuss Finn’s Law with Nicola Sturgeon who supports the cross party campaign for a Finn’s Law for Scotland.
