The UK Farming Minister, David Heath MP, needs to stand up and take a lead on this issue by amending the 1847 Act. He has the power to make a significant change for farm animal welfare.

The live export of British farm animals continues. Despite opposition from the public and many politicians, thousands of animals are leaving UK shores from the port of Dover. Please take action today.

UK Farming Minister, David Heath has claimed to be “no fan” of live exports. Yet, he has done nothing because, apparently, he believes he can’t act without breaking EU law. But he’s got it wrong.

Yes, current EU legislation prevents the UK from banning live exports altogether. BUT David Heath could amend an outdated UK law to give local authorities more power over the trade they allow through their ports. This could still end live exports – and would be perfectly legal under EU law.

We think it’s pretty clear. But apparently David Heath doesn’t.
