Electronic identification of bovine animals (debate)

  Nick Griffin (NI). – Madam President, the voluntary system proposed would have very little effect on Britain because the British system is already very effective. But I have heard from a number of constituents who are concerned that anything involved in the transportation of live animals can, in the end, be used to facilitate the transport of animals for slaughter over a long distance. This is something that is clearly unnecessary in an era of modern refrigeration, and which needs to be phased out.

On the question of labelling, the great concern of everyone concerned with animal welfare is that all meat originating from animals suffering ritual slaughter should be labelled: consumers have the right to know and to reject it.
