Fox Hunting & Animal Welfare

I've been receiving emails from lots of people asking for reassurance that if re-elected on June 8th I will continue to oppose the reintroduction of fox hunting, as well as committing to increasing sentences for those convicted of animal cruelty offences.

I am proud that previous Labour governments brought in the Hunting Act (2004) and the Animal Welfare Act (2006) and if I am re-elected I am committed to defending both. We have also pledged in our manifesto to increase the maximum sentence for those convicted of committing animal cruelty.

You can read more about our specific manifesto commitments on animal welfare here (p. 94).
