Ending cruelty to Scotland's animals

Ban live exports

On 8 June 2021 the UK Government introduced the Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill to parliament, which introduces a ban on the live export of farmed animals for fattening or slaughter, from or through Great Britain. 

This is a historic moment. The live export industry is incredibly cruel and such a ban will spare a great deal of physical and mental suffering.

However, our work is not over yet. The Bill still needs to work its way through Parliament before it becomes law.  

We are urging the Scottish Government to work with the UK Government and the Welsh Government to deliver a ban across the whole of Great Britain at the same time, and as soon as possible. Sign our petition to support this message.
