Environment Minister George Eustis told the Sunday Times that the UK legalizes vertebrates are capable of excitation, “all animals with spinal marrow”
The new legislation is expected to be II. Queen Elizabeth announced her traditional cabinet statement on Tuesday.
The law will confirm that animals are also aware of their feelings and emotions, and are able to feel joy, joy, suffering and pain. The minister says Britain wants to be a world leader in animal rights and that the Vertebrate Act is one of the pillars of that strategy, wrote MTI.
Other bills prohibit the import of hunting trophies, the export of live animals, and the raising of primates as pets. As part of its animal welfare strategy, the government wants to ban imports of fur and the use of microchips in domestic cats. They also want to end the carbon dioxide gassing of pigs.
According to Eustice, all of this sends an important signal to the world. He said many changes, including a ban on the export of live animals, were only possible after Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union. The minister also stressed that Boris Johnson was the first prime minister to make animal welfare a part of government policy.
Opponents of the plans say Johnson is defending animal rights only because of the personal opinions of his fiancée Carrie Symonds. However, according to the environment minister, the prime minister and himself are “as enthusiastic” about it as Symonds, the former Conservative spokesman.
