UK ban on farrowing crates

I have been a long-time campaigner for animal rights and I consistently oppos the cruel treatment of animals via industrial farming methods, which were originally introduced from the USA.

I have recognised that all animals are sentient, and suffer just as we would in similar circumstances, and farrowing crates, just as with the use, for example, of cages for fowls, must end altogether. 

This subject never quite goes away sadly, but I will continue to challenge the Government to end the cruel use of farrowing crates and other cruel industrial farming methods.
