UK: British Government Debate Korean Dog Meat Trade and UK Badgers. Probably More Than ‘EU’ Member State Parliaments !

U Flag

 

SAV Comment – interesting that the issue of the South Korean dogmeat trade is being discussed by the UK Parliament.  UK voted for Brexit.  How many other parliaments in other EU member states are giving time to discuss the dogmeat tade ? – As we have said before, Brexit will enable UK groups to progress and hopefully improve international animal welfare standards.  We are not seeing much of this in the way of improvements from the existing EU.  People of Europe, have balls, get out and leave Junker and his crew to wallow in their own ???..  Don’t just talk  – DO IT !!

“Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is incredibly important during the forthcoming period of negotiations around Brexit that the UK takes a firm position on maintaining the highest possible animal welfare standards when it comes to how we implement laws on animal welfare—not just for companion animals, but for livestock more generally? Otherwise, the messages we are trying to send internationally will be totally undermined”.

And Badgers :

Dear Mark Johnson,

You recently signed the petition “End the badger cull instead of expanding to new areas”: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/165672

On 7 September, MPs debated badger culling and bovine TB.

This was a debate in Westminster Hall, the second debating chamber of the House of Commons. Dr Paul Monaghan MP successfully entered a ballot system for this debate. This is one way backbench MPs can get debates in Parliament.
