Today, I introduced my Animals (Recognition of Sentience) Bill, which acknowledges that many animals are capable of feeling pleasure, pain and suffering.
It’s now over 500 days since the Government promised to recognise animal sentience in UK law before our departure from the European Union. Yet here we stand with the clock ticking down.
The Government said it was looking for a vehicle to bring forward the legislation. I’ve provided it, now they should back it.
