Midlothian South MSP Christine Grahame (SNP) will meet with the minister responsible for animal welfare to further discuss the banning of electronic shock collars.

MSPs debated Ms Grahame’s bid for a ban in the Scottish Parliament last week.

New Minister for the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform Aileen McLeod told Parliament that she is sympathetic and open to having further discussions.

She will meet with Ms Grahame and welfare organisations and ministers to discuss the matter further.
