The Government is proud of the high animal welfare standards that underpin our high-quality Great British produce. We have made a clear manifesto commitment that in all of our trade negotiations we will not compromise on these standards. The Government will stand firm in trade negotiations to ensure any future trade deals live up to the values of farmers and consumers across the UK.
