Today (Wednesday 21st September) Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation Patron Sir Roger Gale MP spoke to Times Radio Presenter John Pienaar about the possibility that the proposed ban on fur and foie gras imports could be dropped, alongside other animal welfare legislation.

In the interview, Sir Roger spoke about concern for the direction of travel for animal welfare legislation at the moment, stating these import bans, and other issues, “may be going onto the backburner”.

He added that “the ‘let them choose’ argument is a little spurious when we have already legislated in the United Kingdom to outlaw fur farms, and we don’t produce foie gras.” Sir Roger spoke of the force feeding of geese – an “unspeakable” practice as well as the strong public support for these, and other animal welfare measures.
