Animal Welfare Manifesto
Animal Welfare Manifesto

๐Ÿ”ดA number of residents have asked me about Labour’s policies on animal welfare and I’m really pleased we have produced a dedicated animal welfare manifesto.

During my time as your MP I have raised a number of animal welfare issues with ministers on behalf of constituents: from speaking out against the badger cull and the ivory trade, to the well-being of domestic, farmed and wild animals across the UK. I’ve also engaged regularly with fantastic groups protecting animals inย our area – including the RSPCA, RSPB and Gwent Wildlife Trust.ย ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿฆก๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ

๐Ÿ”ดI believe we have a moral duty to treat the animals we share our planet with in a humane and compassionate way. No other major political party has such a proven track record of decisive action for animals at home, on farms and in the wild.

๐ŸŒนLabour’s Animal Welfare manifesto contains a number of key recommendations to drive up welfare standards for farmed, domestic and wild animals. These include:

โœ…Strengthening the Hunting Act, introduced by the UK Labour Government, and closing loopholes that allow for the illegal hunting of foxes, deer and hare – including making all illegal hunting and crime a reportable offenceย ๐ŸฆŠ๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿ‡
โœ…Enshrining the principle of animal sentience in UK law๐Ÿ“œ
โœ…Removing two-tier sentencing for animal cruelty so all that animals – whether domestic, under human control or wild – are protected by the same five year maximum sentence for animal crueltyโš–๏ธ
โœ…A ban on live exports for slaughter and fattening๐Ÿš›
โœ…A commitment to the Blue Belt to protect and enhance our marine environment and more.๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŸ
