Luke Pollard – 2021 Comments on Animal Cruelty

The comments made by Luke Pollard, the Shadow Environment Secretary, on 19 July 2021.

In yet another case of their actual delivery falling way short of this Government’s waffle, it is over thirty-months now since the Ivory Act was passed, with Michael Gove saying it would be in force by the end of 2019.

Ministers still haven’t used a single power in the Ivory Act. Media announcements don’t save animals from cruelty and extinction.
