Robert Flello MP to introduce a new law for planet-friendly farming

01/07/2010

The Food Chain campaign has taken a massive step forward with the introduction of a new meat and dairy Bill in Parliament.

Robert Flello, Labour MP for Stoke-on-Trent South, was the second name pulled out of the hat in the annual Private Members’ Ballot on 10 June.

Being selected so near the top of the ballot means he has a real chance of getting his Bill passed into law.

The Bill – based on the Sustainable Livestock Bill – will aim to reduce British meat and dairy factory farms’ dependence on animal feed grown in South America.

Wildlife and rainforests are destroyed so that these feeds – such as soy – can be grown. This destruction also accelerates climate change.
