Motion text

That this House welcomes the European Commission proposal to create an animal welfare label for meat and fish products which would differentiate between food produced to basic welfare standards and that obtained with higher standards; believes this would improve the protection and welfare of farmed animals, would enable consumers to make more informed choices, and would help British farmers, with their high standards of production to compete against low quality imports which can be passed off as British under current rules; and calls on the Government to give active support to and to promote this scheme for the benefit of consumers, animal welfare and the British agriculture industry.
