NOAH has welcomed the publication of the House of Lords European Union Committee report ‘Brexit: Farm Animal Welfare’.
Dawn Howard, NOAH’s chief executive, said: “As stated in the report the industry is united in supporting high standards of animal welfare post-Brexit. Good animal health is integral to good welfare, and we support the Report’s acknowledgement that the veterinary profession is integral to the welfare role.
“Our sector provides tools such as vaccines to help the veterinary profession prevent disease and suffering, and medicines to treat where needed.
“In NOAH’s own first Brexit Barometer, the animal medicines sector has shown optimism about the future for UK animal health and welfare post-Brexit, despite a degree of uncertainly overall. We look forward to working with those involved in the political process to help ensure this optimism is realised.”
