British Pig Farming And The Pigs Are Worth It! Campaign

EDM number 1097 in 2007-08, proposed by Richard Bacon on 03/03/2008.
Categorised under the topic of Agriculture.

That this House congratulates the British pig industry on its high production standards, its continued commitment to animal welfare and on the provision of the best in pork, bacon and ham to consumers; notes with concern that high animal feed prices mean that pig farmers are losing more than £20 on every animal raised, posing a serious threat to the future of British pig production; further notes that shoppers have said they are willing to pay more for high welfare British pork, and that 70 per cent. of imported pork has been produced under conditions that would be illegal in the UK; welcomes the National Pig Association and British Pig Executive's campaign - Pigsareworthit.com; and calls on the Government to help ensure that increases in retail prices flow down the supply chain to Britain's pig farmers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 74 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
