Animal Welfare Manifesto

It was great to be out and about in Featherstone recently when I met Morgan Binnersley. Morgan is passionate about animal welfare and was collecting for neglected Siberian Huskies.

I get hundreds and hundreds of e-mails and letters every year from people concerned about the way we treat animals.  I am proud of the last Labour Government’s policies which achieved much to end animal cruelty.  No other major political party has such a proven track record of decisive action for animals at home, on farms and in the wild.

The last Labour Government:

  • banned hunting with dogs,
  • secured an end to cosmetic testing on animals  
  • banned fur farming and
  • introduced the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

A vote for Labour on 7th May will see a continuation of our commitment to animal welfare.  A Labour Government will:

  • Defend the hunting ban
  • ban the use of wild animals in circuses
  • end the government’s ineffective and inhumane badger culls
  • improve the protection of dogs and cats
  • tackle wildlife crime and reduce animal cruelty on shooting estates
  • lead the fight against global animal cruelty.
