​I have had no recent discussions on animal welfare in China with my Chinese counterpart. However my officials are in ongoing contact with Chinese officials and local Non-Governmental Organisations regarding animal welfare standards and the Illegal Wildlife Trade and the Foreign Secretary raised it with Vice-Premier Liu Yandong on 7 December.
