War on "danger dogs" (UK)

By Mark Hookham
Westminster reporter


A SHEFFIELD MP has vowed to launch a fresh parliamentary campaign to force the Government to beef up the law on dangerous dogs.

Sheffield Hillsborough MP Angela Smith will table a bill to protect people who get mauled on private property.

Speaking during a fringe meeting at the Labour Party conference, Ms Smith said the horrifying attack on city postman Paul Coleman proved the Government must act.

The Dangerous Dogs Act 1991 was drawn up after a six-year-old Bradford girl was mauled and almost killed by a pitbull terrier.

But critics say the 17-year-old act - which only outlaws pit bulls, Japanese tosas, Dogo Argentinos, and Fila Brasileiros dogs - is not far reaching enough.

They argue many other large breeds, such as Rottweilers, should face tough legislation such as being muzzled.

Earlier this year, the Government rejected calls to beef up the act, opting to publish an information leaflet for dog owners instead.

Now Ms Smith has pledged to table a Ten Minute Rule bill, which will be tabled in the Commons when Parliament reconvenes next month.

The bill will extend protection to postmen, GPs, midwives, community nurses and social workers who have to carry out home visits.

Ms Smith added: "There is no real onus on the owners of dogs to make sure people are safe when visiting their homes."

The bill stands no chance of becoming law, but will put more pressure on ministers if it secures widespread cross-party backing.
