The Labour & Co-operative MP for Liverpool Wavertree, Luciana Berger, has told the House of Commons that new proposed laws to tackle dangerous dogs do not go far enough. She also read out the names of 16 victims who have lost their lives in dog attacks.
She has been campaigning for a change in dangerous dog laws since the death of four-year-old John Paul Massey in 2009. As well as John-Paul Massey, the list of victims include 79-year-old pensioner Clifford Clarke, who was killed by a dog in Liverpool just two weeks ago.
