Motion text

That this House supports the Code of Practice on the Welfare of Privately Kept Non-Human Primates which sets the standards required for keepers of the estimated 5,000 privately kept primates in the United Kingdom; calls for the Code's adoption under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 which would be a step towards the improved welfare of privately owned primates; notes the trade of primates as pets is largely unregulated; and calls for the United Kingdom to set an example to Europe, where the primate pet trade poses a serious threat to the conservation and survival of primates.
