Responding to the news that the UK Government has dropped plans for a complete ban on controversial electric shock collars for cats and dogs, Liberal Democrat Environment spokesperson Tim Farron said:
"Michael Gove marched the Government to the top of the hill on this issue, only to shamefully march back down with his tail tucked between his legs. 
"Research from leading experts proves that use of shock collars for dogs and cats is painful and wholly unnecessary. That is why campaigners have consistently made the case for change.
"It is therefore deeply disappointing that the Tories have ruled out an outright ban. Campaigners will be let down, and no doubt many of the government’s own backbenchers too.
“Michael Gove talks the talk on animal welfare but when it comes down to it, he just doesn’t deliver.”
