Animals Abroad Bill


As part of its Animal Welfare Action Plan the Government has proposed a new Animals Abroad Bill to tackle animal cruelty, and support conservation efforts, overseas. The Bill will include bans on the trade in hunting trophies that threaten the conservation status of species abroad, and the domestic sale and advertising of experiences overseas, like elephant rides, that are cruel to animals.

This inquiry scrutinises both aspects of the proposed Bill, considering the most effective way to promote animal welfare by removing UK involvement from cruel practices in other countries.
