Detail of outcome
We received 366 responses to this call for evidence.
As set out in the original call for evidence, we have now passed information and evidence to the Farm Animal Welfare Committee (FAWC).
FAWC have been asked to carry out a review of existing transport standards and make recommendations for improvements for when we leave the EU. We hope to receive FAWC’s report and recommendations later in the year.
This call for evidence seeks views and information on all aspects of animal welfare in transport.
Once the UK has left the EU, we would like the welfare in transport regulatory regime to reflect scientific and veterinary knowledge. This evidence will help us determine how we’ll meet the commitment to take early steps to control the export of live farm animal for slaughter.
