Motion text

That this House is firmly opposed to the export of live calves; supports the efforts of Compassion in World Farming and the RSPCA to end this inhumane trade; deplores the fact that since the resumption of exports in May 2006 tens of thousands of young calves have been exported through Dover to the continent to be reared for veal; is concerned that some calves have been sent all the way to Spain on journeys that can take over 60 hours; fears that the volume of calf exports could rise substantially over the next year; notes that young calves suffer greatly during long journeys; further deplores the fact that shipping calves in severe weather has caused deaths and injuries; further notes that once they reach the continent, calves are often kept on concrete or slatted floors without any straw or other bedding; further notes that such barren systems are illegal in the UK; urges dairy farmers to end the export of calves; further urges the dairy and beef sectors and the Government to work together to develop humane and economically viable uses for male dairy calves; and calls on the Government to press dairy farmers to end the export of live calves.
