Dail debate on animal welfare – Tuesday 3rd October

1 Oct


A debate on animal welfare is scheduled to take place in Dail Eireann this Tuesday, 3rd October from 8pm to 10pm.

The Private Members Motion by Independents 4 Change TDs Maureen O’Sullivan, Clare Daly, Tommy Broughan, Joan Collins, Catherine Connolly, Thomas Pringle and Mick Wallace will highlight the “increasing number of incidents and reports of animal mis-treatment, cruelty and abuse” which stems from “neglect, poor regulations, lack of enforcement of current legislation, inadequate legislation and lack of sanctions for those responsible for these acts of cruelty”.

TDs speaking during the debate will tell the government that “cruelty to animals is unacceptable and won’t be tolerated.”

If you would like to be present in the public gallery to watch this important debate, please request a pass from your local TD. Telephone Dail Eireann 01-6183000 and ask to be put through to your local TD’s office.
