Fur Free Britain

I share the UK Government’s view that a national ban is less effective than working at an international level on animal standards, for example, by working to phase out cruel and inhumane farming and trapping practices. Its international efforts to bring about higher standards are supported by strict EU rules and regulations around fur imports, and I'm pleased to tell you that these rules will be replicated after we have left the EU.

For example, under these rules, there is already a blanket ban on importing fur from a number of animals, including cats and dogs. I can assure you that any fur coming into the UK must come from animals that have been trapped & killed humanely.
