A proposed law to ban wild animals in circuses has been backed by the SDLP.

The Westminster Bill, introduced this week, would see the practice brought to an end by the end of 2015.

“It is important that this Bill can become law quickly,” said SDLP Foyle MP Mark Durkan.

“Given the level of public support that the ban enjoys – a resounding 94 per cent - I am hopeful progress can be made.”
