Animal Welfare

Wow!  What an amazing number of people there are in Hemel Hempstead who are concerned about animal welfare.  I’ve had hundreds of emails from concerned local voters, so I thought I'd make sure that everyone could see our position here.

Labour’s vision is for the UK to lead the world with high animal welfare standards in the wild, in farming and for domestic animals. Labour will increase the maximum sentence for those convicted of committing animal cruelty. 

We will promote cruelty-free animal husbandry and consult on ways to ensure better enforcement of agreed standards. 

We will prohibit the third-party sale of puppies, introduce and enforce a total ban on ivory trading, and support the ban on wild animals in circuses. 

We will cease the badger cull, which spreads bovine TB.

Labour ended fox hunting, deer hunting and hare coursing. Only a Labour government will maintain the bans.
