Motion text

That this House notes the exposure by the BBC on its Inside Out programme of the UK's failure in its duty to protect horses and ponies from being exported live for slaughter abroad; is appalled that animals continue to be transported long distances in this process with little regard shown for their health and welfare during such arduous journeys; reminds the Government of promises past and that legislation is currently in place to prevent such treatment from occurring; is also aware that a recently signed tripartite agreement to further restrict the unlimited movement of less financially valued stock is now in place; and urges those responsible to use that tripartite agreement to both police and enforce this policy forthwith.
