Justin attended a Parliamentary drop-in session, supported by Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, police representatives and Royal Mail to learn about dog attacks on local postal workers.
This forms part of Royal Mail’s wider campaign to reduce the number of dog attacks on postal workers and to encourage responsible dog ownership.
“With seven attacks on postmen and women recorded in Ellesmere Port and Neston from April 2014 to April 2015 I am pleased to support Royal Mail’s Dog Awareness Week.
Dog attacks are a significant issue faced by postal workers, other official bodies - such as meter readers - and members of the public; on average eight postmen and women a day are attacked by dogs across the UK. Royal Mail, CWU, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and the police are doing a fantastic job promoting responsible dog ownership and I fully support this important campaign”.
