MEMBER of Parliament for Aberavon, Stephen Kinnock, has accompanied RSPCA inspector Nic de Celis on several calls in and around his region.
Throughout the course of a busy day, they dealt with a number of routine calls across the Port Talbot area.
Stephen Kinnock MP said: “It was great to join Nic, one of the RSPCA’S inspectors, to witness first hand the valuable work undertaken by the RSPCA. I was lucky enough to be able to able to accompany Nic on a number of visits, and was able to learn a great deal about his approach, and about the vital role that the RSPCA plays in our community.”
A number of Assembly Members and Members of Parliament across Wales have spent days-out with local RSPCA inspectors, gaining valuable insight into the work the Society does to uphold and improve standards of animal welfare.
Following the ride-along, RSPCA inspector Nic de Celis said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Kinnock to spend a day with me to experience what we do. We attended several calls and he was given true insight into the work the RSPCA does.”
Although animal welfare is almost fully devolved to the National Assembly for Wales, MPs understandably remain keenly interested in RSPCA’s work in Wales to prevent cruelty.
