Former Home Secretary Lord David Blunkett met with World Dog Alliance on 5 February to discuss a full dog meat ban in UK, which he has clearly declared his support on the legislation.
Before joining the House of Lords, Lord Blunkett had been an MP for nearly 30 years since 1987. He was appointed as Home Secretary, Education Secretary and Work and Pensions Secretary by former Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Lord Blunkett is known for his story with dogs. He was born blind and has to rely on guide dogs in his daily life. He always brings along his guide dog, Barley to the Parliament. The black Labrador was with Lord Blunkett during his meeting World Dog Alliance, making the dog meat ban more meaningful.
