U-turn on plan over an­i­mal wel­fare

Country Smallholding - - June News -

Min­is­ters have backed down on plans to re­peal farm an­i­mal wel­fare codes, aban­don­ing their move to put the poul­try in­dus­try in charge of the guid­ance on chick­ens. De­fra said the de­ci­sion was made “in light of views raised”. The move to scrap the of­fi­cial code on farm­ing chick­ens for meat and breed­ing caused an out­cry from an­i­mal char­i­ties and op­po­si­tion par­ties.
