Now the UK has left the EU though Brexit, it can make its own legislation on all issues.
The EU intends to stop caged animal farming by 2027; and so now the UK government needs to step up to the plate and at least match this. We need to let the government know how we feel – please sign the petition.

End the Cage Age for all farmed animals
Every year across the UK, millions of farmed animals are kept in cages, unable to express their natural behaviours and experiencing huge suffering. These inhumane systems cannot be the future of British farming. The UK Government must legislate to ‘End the Cage Age’ for all farmed animals.
The European Commission plans to ban cages for all farmed animals, potentially by 2027, and will also look to prohibit the import of food from caged systems. This would result in the UK lagging behind the EU and may add bureaucracy to trade with the UK’s largest export market – possibly damaging the whole British farming sector.
The UK Government must work to secure by 2027, across the UK, a ban on the use of:
-barren, enriched and ‘combi’ cages
-farrowing crates for sows
-individual calf pens
