Government plans to protect the public from dog attacks in England are “woefully inadequate”, a group of MPs has said.
The law should be “urgently” amended to boost “action on any dog-related antisocial behaviour”, the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee said.
In a report, the MPs said they were not convinced the government was giving “sufficient priority” to dog control.
Ministers are bringing in compulsory microchipping for all dogs in England.
They have also said the police will have more powers to investigate attacks.
