Animal Rights

Keith is fiercely committed to protecting the rights of animals – and to promoting higher standards of animal welfare across the EU. He has called for a ban on all fur imports, an end to cruel industrialised farming practices, and a gradual phasing out of the use of animals in experiments. Keith is alarmed at reports revealing the extent of the global biodiversity crisis, and is working hard to support action to protect the natural habitat and endangered animal species for future generations.
