The Animal Welfare Strategy Group is currently working to encourage Government to implement the range of promises contained in its May 2021 Animal Welfare Action Plan.
One of those promises has now been delivered, in the form of the Animal Welfare (Sentience) Act, which received Royal Assent in April 2022. Link’s briefings (produced through the Better Deal for Animals coalition) to support the passage of this legislation through Parliament can be found on this page.
The Group is working to ensure the delivery of other measures in the Action Plan, including the Kept Animals Bill and measures on snares, the fur trade and the import of hunting trophies.
