CCTV to be compulsory in all abattoirs in England

Slaughterhouses in England will have to install CCTV as part of government plans to monitor animal welfare.

Under rules being phased in over the next year, Food Standards Agency vets will be able to ask to see footage of all areas where livestock are held.

Slaughterhouses found to be failing welfare standards could face a criminal investigation or lose staff licences.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove said the proposals would make the UK a “global leader on animal welfare”.

 

British Veterinary Association (BVA) president Gudrun Ravetz said the mandatory CCTV in all areas of slaughterhouses was “essential” to safeguarding animal welfare.

“We are particularly pleased to see a commitment to official veterinarians having unrestricted access to footage, which the BVA has been calling for,” he said.

“Vets’ independence and unique qualifications help ensure that the UK will continue to have the highest standards of animal health, welfare and food safety.”
