Factory Farming

I would like to see an end to the farming of caged hens and more free-range meats available in our supermarkets, from responsibly farmed sources. Britain has some of the strongest animal welfare legislation in the world and to toughen our already high standards, the Conservatives have made it mandatory to have CCTV recording in all slaughterhouses, so that infringements can be swiftly and robustly acted upon by police. With country of origin labelling on food, we would be able to trust in the high animal welfare standards that come with buying British and supporting local farmers. 

You are correct that Brexit gives us a unique opportunity to adapt our current systems and I will do my utmost to support the 5 key points are raised in this campaign both locally in Cumbria and nationally in Parliament.
