WORLD ANIMAL-FREE RESEARCH DAY

Today is World Animal-Free Research Day.


To mark the occasion, I challenged the UK Government to recognise the sentience of all animals.


The Animal Welfare Sentience Bill could and should have been strengthened to recognise the rights of sentient animals undergoing horrific scientific testing and MOD military experiments. The sentient rights of all animals in the UK must be enshrined in law. I also called for a public scientific hearing into this issue. The UK is being left behind on animal testing as the EU prepares to phase out cruel animal experiments in favour of cutting-edge, innovative, scientific replacements.
