To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, when he plans to (a) publish the results of the consultation on improvements to animal welfare in transport and (b) bring forward legislative proposals to ban the export of live animals for slaughter and fattening.
15 April 2021
The public consultation ended on 25th February and we are currently analysing all the responses we received. We will be publishing the Government response later this year.
We hope to have legislation in place to end live animal exports for slaughter and fattening by the end of the year.
