The Action Plan for Animal Welfare was published on 12 May 2021 and sets out the Government's plans, aims and ambitions across animal welfare.

Our exit from the EU affords us the opportunity to raise our already high domestic animal welfare standards, to act as a dynamic leader on the world stage, and to introduce measures and protections which are right in principle.

The Action Plan for Animal Welfare demonstrates this Government's commitment to a brighter future for animals both at home and abroad, and also provides a foundation for conversations on how we can continue to improve animal welfare and conservation in the future.
