British Farming Welfare Standards

EDM number 140 in 2017-19, proposed by Daniel Kawczynski on 06/07/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Animal welfare, Consumers, Farmers and Standards.

That this House commends British farmers for adhering to world leading standards of animal health and welfare within farmed livestock; urges retailers, processors and consumers to support those production standards by sourcing and buying British produce wherever possible; and calls on the Government to ensure that it supports British farmers in maintaining these standards as the UK leaves the EU, whilst fulfilling the Government's ambitions on efficiency and productivity and protects against the importation of livestock products produced to lower standards of health and welfare in other parts of the world.

This motion has been signed by a total of 16 MPs.
