We also pointed out that local authorities can add conditions to individual pet shop licences restricting the species of animals sold. I have placed a copy of the letter in the House libraries.</p><p> </p> more like this

In the case of the longest spacing, if a driver is short of fuel and has just passed a Motorway Service Area, it is possible for the driver to use the next available junction to return to the service area they have just passed, and would therefore be closer to a service area than this.</p> more like this
