The Campaign for Finn’s Law continues to make great progress and Ministers have agreed to meet with local Members of Parliament Stephen McPartland and Oliver Heald to discuss the next steps in the campaign. Police Dog Finn popped in to see Stephen McPartland MP today for a catch up, after the questions he raised in Parliament.
We need to keep the pressure up in our campaign for Finns Law and Stephen told Ministers in Parliament that “Police dog Finn was brutally stabbed several times in my constituency while apprehending a violent criminal. The current law treats police dog Finn, a canine hero, like a piece of computer equipment—the charge is criminal damage. This is unacceptable. My right hon. and learned Friend Sir Oliver Heald is leading a campaign to introduce Finn’s law. Will the Minister agree to meet me and my right hon. and learned Friend, so that we can provide greater protection for our service animals in the course of their duty?”
Ministers have agreed to meet to discuss Finns Law and Dave Wardell, his owner, said “This is excellent news and another important step in our exciting campaign for Finns Law, so our amazing service animals get the protection they need.”
Stephen added, “It is always great to meet Finn and he has such a wonderful personality, it is more important than ever that we succeed in this campaign.”
