Barley Path

The Animal Welfare Party’s vision is of a fairer, more equitable and sustainable society for all.

Our Policies Include:

  • Improving human health, saving NHS funds, protecting the environment and global food security by promoting healthy plant-based diets

  • Re-directing EU subsidies away from livestock and fisheries farming and into plant-based agriculture

  • Phasing out farming practices and systems with poor welfare consequences for animals

  • Ending live animal export and reducing journey times for animals travelling to slaughter within the UK

  • Ending all slaughter without prior stunning

  • Independently monitored CCTV for all slaughterhouses
  • Phasing out animal experimentation with binding targets for reduction combined with proper funding & real support for alternatives

  • Increasing penalties for those convicted of animal abuse

  • Clear labelling of all products with information which allows consumers to make informed choices in line with their own principles on the environment, health, animal welfare and the social circumstances in which a product is produced
  • A ban on ‘puppy farms’ and the sale of animals in retail stores

Our most recent manifesto, produced for the 2015 General Election, is available to download here: Animal Welfare Party 2015 General Election Manifesto.
