    Ban on live animal exports being considered.

    Ban on live animal exports considered by UK government.

    The government is understood to be considering a ban on the export of live animals for slaughter, and will launch a consultation in the spring.

    A Private Members Bill on the issue was due to be heard on Friday, but has been withdrawn by its sponsor, the former Conservative minister Theresa Villiers.

    She says Environment Secretary Michael Gove is looking very seriously at banning the trade.

    Farmer Frank Langrish said a ban would be a major blow for post-Brexit trade.

    Like many of thousands of others I have always been against the shipping of live animals abroad for sale and slaughter as it has been proven that the animal welfare in this kind of trade is not considered when they have to travel long distances crammed onto a boat.

    It is good that finally something is going to be done about this.

    I will keep an eye on how this bill develops.

    Great one Papa.

    This is one I have railed against for many years.

    Because it is cheaper to transport export animals alive the exporters don't give a damn about the welfare of these animals.

    It has been researched before and in previous secret videos it was proved that the animals are crammed in too tight and cannot lie down and they are often not fed at all on such journeys.

    I hope that Gove does what he says he is going to do, but I won't hold my breath waiting for it to happen.

    Yes, me too Angie, as this trade is one of the most reprehensible ones out there..

    Come on Gove, put your money where your mouth is.

    I agree, I too have hated live export, and I remember live horse export from England as well as Ireland. Whether Ireland has stopped it I don't know, but It is reprehensible.

    I guess we will just see if Gove has the courage to do what he says he will do, or not.
