Conwy council efforts to lobby UK Government pay off.

In 2018 county councillor Sam Cotton introduced a Notice of Motion asking for Conwy County Borough Council to back the Lucy's Law campaign.  Sam's Notice of Motion was supported by the council and UK Government have listened, implementing new legislation which aims to tackle the low-welfare, high volume supply of puppies and kittens, by banning their commercial third-party sale in England.  The legislation only applies to England, so we hope that the Welsh Government will follow suit soon!
