The National Farmers’ Union requested the UK government to prohibit distribution of chlorine chicken and hormonal meat in stores and supermarkets.
Minette Batters, the NFU president, said "high standards of animal welfare" should be exerted on imports. She said if the government doesn’t intend to amend the agriculture bill, we will need a secondary law to improve.
Also, she called for the UK government to advocate Lord Curry amendment in the agriculture bill, which will be delivered over to the House of Commons next week.
The amendment makes it easier for the trade and agriculture commission (TAC) to observe trade deals carefully.
