Early Day Motion

As promised in yesterday’s petitions debate Sir Christopher Chope has tabled a prayer motion to annul the Dangerous Dogs (Designated Types) (England and Wales) Order 2023, this is the initial Statutory instrument used on October 31st to add the XL Bully to the current list of banned types. It is a fatal prayer motion which attempts to annul the SI and is the route to take when objecting to Negative Procedure Statutory Instruments. Sir Christopher Chope is within the forty day ‘prayer’ period but in order to secure an annulment it must be agreed by the house, the last time a fatal prayer was successful in the house was in 1979 but we wish him success in his objection to the adding of another breed to Section 1 of the Act
