Dog Control Bill

27 April 2009

Lord Redesdale introduced a debate in the Lords about a Private Members' Bill that makes provision for the control of dogs and their welfare.

Members of the Lords discussed the general principles of the Bill during second reading.

Private Members' Bills can be introduced in the Lords by any Member who would like to change a law. There is no ballot in the Lords. To become law a Private Members' Bill must go through the same stages as a Government Bill.

The Dog Control Bill proceeds to committee stage for line by line examination of its content - a date for which is still to be scheduled.
