Over recent months I have been contacted by a number of constituents who are concerned about the continuing use of wild animals in circuses.

Last Thursday in the House of Commons there was a debate on this issue, with a motion being put forward by the Backbench Business Committee, which the Government did not oppose. This is presumably because they would have lost.

As a believer in animal welfare, I strongly disagree that any wild animal should be used for human entertainment.
