To ask the Scottish Government whether its planned consultation on live animal transport legislation will include measures to improve the welfare of dogs during transportation.

Current status: Answered by Mairi Gougeon on 14 October 2021


The Scottish Government is committed in its Programme for Government to start consultations this year on proposals to improve animal transport legislation. It is expected that these consultations will largely relate to the transport of livestock and horses initially. The transport of dogs and other animals will however also be considered in due course.
