Consultation opens on compulsory CCTV in slaughterhouses in Scotland!

Posted on the 29th March 2018

Positive news: the Scottish government has opened a consultation on compulsory CCTV in slaughterhouses.

While slaughter can never be cruelty-free, properly monitored CCTV would help to prevent the shocking illegal violence that we have repeatedly filmed during our undercover investigations.

We’ll be responding to the consultation and providing information for anyone who wants to add their voice. We’ll keep you updated!

(Animal welfare is a devolved issue, so the governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have to implement CCTV themselves, Parliament in Westminster cannot impose it.)
