Importation Of Foie Gras

EDM number 130 in 2017-19, proposed by Kate Hoey on 05/07/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Animal welfare, Food and International trade.

That this House deplores the production of foie gras, considering it cruel and unnatural to force-feed geese until it causes internal damage; welcomes the UK's continued ban on domestic production of this foodstuff; admires India as the first country in the world to ban the import of foie gras; and calls on the Government to follow this example in making the UK the next country to ban the import of this most unpleasant product.

This motion has been signed by a total of 31 MPs.
