We have not sought the views of the Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or animal welfare officers in local councils in Northern Ireland, although it is open to them to write to us about this review.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are a number of factors that impact on the length of time taken to complete the report following the assessment, for example, whether the assessment was conducted in a person’s home or at an assessment centre. As the Second Independent Review of PIP acknowledged, the logistics in organising and conducting home visits will introduce some time delay in writing up reports immediately after the assessment.</p><p> </p><p>The Department expects assessment reports to be completed in a timely manner following the assessment but does not set a fixed timeframe for the completion of assessment reports following the assessment.</p> more like this
