star this property answer text <p>To date no cases of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in deer have been confirmed in the UK. Since 2016, 24 cases have been confirmed in Norway (details can be found on their <a href="http://www.hjortevilt.no/skrantesjuke/" target="_blank">website</a>) and one in Finland. These are the only cases to date in Europe.</p><p> </p><p>Defra officials are in ongoing discussion with the European Union on measures to prevent the spread of the disease. The EU has banned the import of live cervids and cervid meat and products from member states and third countries where the disease has been confirmed, and has also banned the import and transit of urine lures. Following the first confirmation of CWD in Norway in 2016, the European Commission has introduced safeguard measures to limit the seasonal movements of live animals between certain regions of Norway, Sweden and Finland.</p><p> </p><p>The UK will continue to implement these controls following our departure from the EU.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is making good on our commitment to make the UK a world leader in the care and protection of animals as we leave the EU. We are planning to increase maximum penalties for animal cruelty from six months’ to five years’ imprisonment. We are updating our statutory welfare codes, starting with the publication of new meat chicken and laying hen codes last year. These codes strengthen guidance for keepers and owners of livestock on how to meet the needs of their animals and enhance their welfare.</p><p> </p><p>We are considering what more can be done to improve our already high animal welfare standards in the context of our future agricultural policy. In England, we intend to develop publicly-funded schemes for farmers to deliver animal welfare enhancements beyond our high regulatory baseline that are not sufficiently rewarded by the market.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Defra is keen to ensure that we uphold our high standards of animal welfare including in relation to horseracing. Irresponsible use of the whip is completely unacceptable.</p><p> </p><p>The British Horseracing Association (BHA) requires that whips be used responsibly and jockeys may only use the whip within certain strict rules. The BHA policy on the whip was drawn up in consultation with animal welfare groups, such as the RSPCA and World Horse Welfare and is published on the BHA website. The latest rules include a threshold on the number of times the whip can be used before racing stewards can consider an inquiry. If the rules are broken, the jockey may be banned from racing for a certain number of days depending on the seriousness of the offence.</p><p> </p><p>Defra is satisfied that the rules in place are sufficient to restrict and limit the use of the whip in horse racing.</p><p> </p> more like this
