"The Government has recently made some fantastic changes to animal welfare legislation, toughening up on people convicted of animal cruelty. As a nation of animal lovers, I know how important this is to people in Louth & Horncastle and beyond, and I wanted to celebrate the changes by encouraging residents to share pictures of their beloved pets."

"I enjoyed seeing the pictures of everyone's adorable pets, and I thank all the people who entered and voted for taking part in the first-ever cutest pet competition in the constituency."
