That this House notes the recent vote in the European Parliament which overwhelmingly adopted the Action Plan on the Protection and Welfare of Animals 2006-2010; recognises that the action plan fully endorses an EU-wide ban on the sale of dog and cat fur; believes this vote sends out a clear message that the animal cruelty associated with the trade in dog and cat fur is unacceptable; and calls on the Government to heed the calls on the public and of organisations such as the Scottish SPCA and implement a UK ban on the import, export and domestic trade in dog and cat fur or of products made with dog and cat fur as soon as possible.
