Andrew George, former MP for St Ives, writes:
Conservative MPs voted against a bill to combat puppy smuggling and live farm animal exports again .
Labour, with Liberal Democrat support attempted to reintroduce animal welfare legislation which had been dropped by the Cons, in contradiction to their manifesto promise.
The RSPCA’s head of public affairs, David Bowles, said: “It’s terrible news for animals and we are calling on the UK government to rethink and bring back all the proposals contained within the binned bill back by other means. We cannot go on allowing cruel practices such as the live exports of animals for slaughter and the puppy import trade.”
We won't give up and will find other ways of passing laws to give animals the protection they need and deserve.
I hope you support too
