Motion text

That this House commends the work of Animals Asia Foundation in their campaign to protect Black Bears in Asia; is horrified by the pain caused to the bears when the bile is drained from them and appalled that the bears are kept for years in rusting, cramped cages with no room to stand up or turn around; welcomes the fact that the sale of Traditional Chinese Medicines containing bile from these Bears is illegal in Britain; and calls upon the Government to ensure that the law against the sale of these medicines in the United Kingdom is properly enforced.
