The Welsh Government has halted its plans to introduce new laws on the control of dangerous dogs. The minister responsible, Alun Davies, has told AMs that he wants to look at working with counterparts in the UK Government on developing rules for both Wales and England.
As a result he says the Welsh Government has 'for the moment, suspended further work on the Control of Dogs (Wales) Bill.'
In discussions with the Home Office and Defra, it has become clear that there may be value in a joint collaborative approach. I will continue discussions with the UK Government with a view to considering whether early UK Parliamentary legislation would be the best vehicle to take forward our proposals in a coherent way.
