Motion text

That this House calls on the Government to ensure that the lifting of the ban on British beef exports is properly applied across the EU; regrets that whilst the ban has been in place hundreds of thousands of calves have been shot at birth; believes that it would be far better for farmers and animals if there was a domestic veal industry so that calves could be reared for meat, and that where the live trade takes place the highest standards must be rigorously applied to uphold animal welfare; and calls on the House authorities to ensure that only British veal is served on the parliamentary estate.
