As many residents will already know, I care deeply about animal welfare and protections.
I was very happy, therefore, to support the coalition campaign that is calling for the Government to bring forward legislation that recognises animal sentience in law.
I agree that Post-Brexit, the UK should ensure a #BetterDealForAnimals, that goes further than EU law and that the UK should continue to strengthen our already world-leading animal rights and protections.
Brexit offers a fantastic opportunity to ensure better protections for animals, and I am supporting a number of campaigns to push the Government to ensure animal rights are upheld. Read more about my campaigns: here.
