Kept Animal Bill - Another Broken Promise
Updated: Jun 28
This week Jessica joined MPs and Parliamentary Candidates in calling out the Government on its decision to abandon the Kept Animal Bill.
At the last General Election the Conservatives pledged to deliver the policies set out in this bill - which include action to tackle puppy smuggling, puppy farming, animal theft and live animal exports.
Yet again the Conservatives have let down voters and attempted to avoid Parliamentary scrutiny - and in doing so have given the green light to practices that harm animals.
This Government has a poor track record on animal protection. Government has also rolled back on promises to end the import of fur and foie gras due to fears of an internal backlash within the Conservative Party.
As a result, the Labour Party put forward a motion to reintroduce the Kept Animals Bill.
