UK: 12/5/21 – Live Animal Exports To Be Banned – and Other Things.

WAV Comment (Mark) – After more than 30 years of personally campaigning against this disgusting, barbaric trade; the news today (12/5/21) is finally looking good.  “MINISTERS have published an action plan on animal welfare, looking at how to use Britain’s freedom outside the EU to increase standards”.  Freedom outside of the EU; this legislation shows what can be done by individual nations when they do not have to bow to do nothing fools in Brussels.

I am checking and re checking everywhere to get confirmation; but as you can see below it looks positive.

I will write more on this as more detail is obtained.

Regards Mark

George Eustice, the environment secretary, said: “We are a nation of animal lovers and were the first country in the world to pass animal welfare laws.

Our action plan for animal welfare will deliver on our manifesto commitment to ban the export of live animal exports for slaughter and fattening, prohibit keeping primates as pets, and bring in new laws to tackle puppy smuggling.

As an independent nation, we are now able to go further than ever to build on our excellent track record.”
