Madrid (EFE) the discord dragged by PSOE and Unidas Podemos (UP) on account of hunting dogs.
In its processing, the text of the norm has incorporated in the parliamentary commission phase a compromised amendment of the socialist group supported by PP and Vox, which excludes hunting dogs from the bill and which has been rejected by Unidas Podemos (UP ), political partner of the coalition government.
United We Can, a few hours before the final debate in Congress, continues to press the socialist group to recover the initial spirit of the norm and reincorporate hunting dogs.
To do this, it has registered a new amendment that will be debated in plenary session of Congress this Thursday and that has also been signed by ERC, Bildu and Más País.
After the debate, if the norm is approved -although the result is still uncertain since the number of parliamentary supports is not clear-, it would go to the Senate to continue with its processing before its final approval.
Hunting dogs excluded from his protection
The bill was promoted by the Minister of Social Rights, Ione Belarra, from Podemos, and was approved in the Council of Ministers in the summer, although it was later amended by the socialist group to exclude hunting dogs from its protection.
While UP continues “in extremis” pressing the socialist group to return to the initial consensus, the PSOE maintains its position and defends its amendment, which is the one worked with the field sector and the rural world, and considers that the bill guarantees animal welfare.
From United We Can, different legal alternatives have been proposed to the socialist group to overcome the obstacle of hunting dogs, but they have not been accepted by their government partner.
One of them, the proposal to include in the bill a model similar to that of Castilla-La Mancha where hunting dogs are excluded from the regional law only when they practice this activity, but not in other situations.
