Dan spoke on the "new animal welfare strategy" debate in Strasbourg. As a passionate animal welfare supporter, he argued that instead of new legislation, we need to focus on enforcing the existing laws.
“We have the strictest animal welfare rules in the world, but if they are not enforced they are worthless. There is no point in having a new animal welfare strategy unless we recognise that the existing laws are widely ignored and are often only given lip service by many member states”.
