United Kingdom and Elephant

The United Kingdom government has abolished plans to reprehend animal welfare codes within the nation. If the plan had taken effect, it would have meant more power in the hands of the livestock industry administration.

Animal welfare organisations including the RSPCA and Compassion in World Farming – were concerned this could provoke a settling for business as usual. Nevertheless, others said the rules ought to have been changed to reflect advances in science.

The lawmaking body said it had reconsidered the move “in light of perspectives raised”. It said the current statutory structure would stay set up, however that it would “continue working with industry” to improve the animal welfare code system.

The present animal welfare code on developing chickens for meat and raising was due to be canceled on 27 April, and will be supplanted meanwhile by new “industry-drove” rules drawn up by the British Poultry Council (BPC).
