CCTV to be mandatory in slaughterhouses

Steve Brine has warmly welcomed news that CCTV is to become compulsory in all English slaughterhouses.

The UK already has some of the highest animal welfare standards in the world, and has led the way in the protection of animals.

Steve Brine said: "The manifesto commitment for CCTV to be required in every slaughterhouse in England in the areas where live animals are present, is an important next step towards reinforcing our status as a global leader.γ€€It is also the outcome of a long campaign backed by many of my constituents.

"I am delighted the Government has also confirmed it will raise standards for farm animals and domestic pets by modernising statutory animal welfare codes to reflect enhancements in medicines, technology and the latest research and advice from vets. The codes will remain enshrined in law and the first to be updated will cover chickens bred for meat.

"Slowly but surely Michael Gove is doing all the right things, and as we prepare to leave the EU, these measures show consumers around the world that our animals are protected to the very highest standards."
