Fly Grazing And Horse Welfare

EDM number 785 in 2013-14, proposed by Alan Meale on 25/11/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Animal welfare and Animals.

That this House is aware that throughout the UK a crisis is currently taking place in the horse industry whereby, because of austerity, lowered market values and lesser demand, coupled with the increasing costs of owning and caring for an animal, many owners have been left in the situation of neither being able to look after nor sell their horses, a situation which has led to many horses being subjected to neglect, abandonment or kept by fly grazing, a practice which sees horses left on land without the landowner's permission; notes that at the present time many equine charities are full to bursting point; and calls on the Government to make the necessary financial arrangements available to deal with this important matter.

This motion has been signed by a total of 39 MPs.
