Motion text

This House commends the role of all sectors of the veterinary profession in the welfare of domestic pets and livestock and in maintaining public health; recognises the high level of education and training provided by UK veterinary schools and training providers for veterinary surgeons and nurses throughout the world; acknowledges the service delivered by official veterinarians in testing for Bovine TB in cattle and other activities relating to disease surveillance and animal welfare monitoring, including the inspection and authorisation of animals and animal products for export and the management of the Pet Travel Scheme; notes that each year around 50 per cent of veterinary surgeons registering to practise in the UK are from overseas, with the vast majority coming from the EU; and calls on the Government to work with the British Veterinary Association and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to guarantee the rights of EU veterinary surgeons and nurses already living, working and studying in the UK, alongside reciprocal rights for UK veterinary professionals working in the EU.
