UK elections, December 12th

UK elections will be held on 12th December, and we believe where a candidate stands on animals is a strong test of their fitness to hold office.

In Westminster, Scottish MPs will be in a position to vote on animal issues which are currently not devolved. A few points you can put to candidates include whether they will support;


A Ban on the public sale of fireworks

An independent inquiry into the efficacy of using animals in research

A ban on the use of animals in military/ Ministry of Defence tests

A ban on live exports for slaughter or fattening

Scrapping of VAT on veterinary treatment


Please keep in mind that Scottish MPs may also vote on matters applying to animals in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. As a result, please also ask them to provide details of what they would do to protect the rights/ welfare of animals in general.


We’ve compiled a list of candidates for your constituency below. Contact details will be available online.
