Craig vs Live Exports

I think live animal exports are cruel and unnecessary - here's what I'm doing to stop them...

May 2016

House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA

I introduced a 'Ten-Minute Rule Bill to Parliament which would remove the obstacle in UK law preventing Thanet District Council from banning live-animal-exports.  The Bill passed its first stage and gathered a significant amount of media attention, putting the issue back on the agenda.

June 2016

Port of Ramsgate, Kent

In June I invited George Eustice, the Environment Minister to the Port of Ramsgate to discuss Live-Exports.  He agreed with me that this practice was abhorrent and said that Britain after Brexit would be free to ban this practice.


JULY 2016

House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA

In July I brought my Bill back to the House of Commons, this time as a 'Presentation Bill', where it passed and currently sits on the House's Schedule to be debated on the 24th March 2017.

On the 26 August I joined protesters to speak out of the cruelty of the live-export trade and promote my Bill to put a stop to it.

How can you help?

1. If you don't live in South Thanet, email your MP and ask them to back my Bill on the 24th March.  It is called the: Harbours, Docks and Piers Clauses Act 1847 (Amendment) Bill 2016-17.


2. Share this page on Facebook and Twitter and let people know about my campaign to put a stop to the cruelty.


3. Fill out you details below to back the bill and sign-up as a co-sponsor.
