Preseli MP Stephen Crabb has joined with pupils from a local school to urge for tougher sentencing for those who harm animals.
In a Zoom meeting with pupils from Redhill School, Stephen Crabb discussed the Animal Welfare (Sentencing) Bill also known as Finn’s Law Part Two, named after Police Dog Finn who was stabbed while helping to apprehend a criminal.
Both Redhill School and Stephen Crabb campaigned for the original “Finn’s Law” and were fortunate enough to meet with Police Dog Finn and his handler PC Dave Wardell in Parliament in 2019 (pictured).
Stephen Crabb said: “Redhill have been a driving force of both Finn’s Law and Finn’s Law Part Two and I’m pleased to join them in support of tougher sentencing for those who harm animals. My thanks to the pupils for their continued effort in supporting this, it really does make a difference.
“The Bill is currently making its way through the House of Lords and I have written to Lord Randall, sponsor of the Bill, to offer my support to ensuring Finn’s Law Part Two is made into law.
Redhill School deputy headteacher Vicky Brown said: ‘’The children at Redhill are determined to continue the good work of their peers and ensure Finn’s Law Part Two is made law.
“They are very excited that their letters made a difference and that their voices have been heard. They are now going to do all they can to ensure the law is passed before the end of the Parliamentary year.”
