Animal Health & Welfare Act Amendment Consultation 2019: Closes 26th April
Seeking views on proposals to strengthen the enforcement of animal welfare legislation by;
- increasing the maximum available penalties for certain animal cruelty offences (including offences involving attacks on service animals);
- enabling secondary legislation to be made that will allow Fixed Penalty Notices to be used in relation to lesser animal welfare offences; and
- making it easier for approved bodies to quickly make the best arrangements for animals after they have been taken into possession to protect their welfare.
Why We Are Consulting
To formally establish if there is stakeholder support for these proposals to strengthen the enforcement powers of the Animal Health & Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006.
Furthermore we are seeking expert views from key stakeholders and enforcement agencies about how these new arrangements could work in practice.
It's hoped expert stakeholders involved in the enforcement of the Act can explain in detail why these Programme for Government commitments could simplify and improve the enforcement of the Animal Health & Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006, and will provide us with practical examples and suggestions of how these new arrangements should work.
