Romford MP Andrew Rosindell has been supporting animals for years.
At the last elections, the Conservative party stated they would ban live export something animal rights campaigners have been asking for.
Animals suffer horrifically as they are kept in atrocious conditions, being transported across Europe and even further.
Today Andrew Rosindell writes in the Havering Daily.
Animal welfare is a typical example of where regulations in Brussels have held us back for too long. As I said in my question to the Prime Minister a couple of weeks ago, Britain is a nation of animal lovers, and Brexit presents the perfect opportunity for us to lead the world in animal welfare. We must decouple ourselves from the EU’s lesser standards on animal welfare.
It is intolerable that every year in this great country, thousands of cattle and other livestock are jammed together in tight, cramped spaces before being sent overseas for slaughter, often as far away as North Africa. Membership of the European single market has meant that British governments have been unable to end this barbaric and backward practice of live exports.
