That this House calls on the Government to bring forward legislative proposals for the mandatory installation of CCTV in UK slaughterhouses; expresses concern that eight of the nine slaughterhouses secretly filmed by Animal Aid have breached the law, a failure rate of 89 per cent.; is disappointed with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' decision not to prosecute when evidence of animal welfare abuses are secretly recorded; believes that the introduction of compulsory CCTV in UK slaughterhouses will increase animal protection and allow those caught on film breaking the law to be prosecuted; welcomes the support of the Food Standards Agency (FSA)for the use of CCTV in slaughterhouses as a useful monitoring tool; notes that plant operators who operate CCTV are keen to demonstrate to FSA officials the high standard to which their operatives work; and furtherbelieves other UK slaughterhouses should follow this best practice to maintain the UK's position as a world leader on animal welfare standards.
