Check your MP's record on animal welfare

The Independent reports that the charity Animal Aid has launched a website resource that enables voters to check the record of their MP on animal welfare issues,

The paper says that the site, which is launched today, contains information on politicians’ voting records and views on such topics as the installation of CCTV cameras in slaughterhouses to prevent cruelty, and circus animals:

Animal Aid hopes that VoteForAnimals.org.uk will put pressure on MPs and parliamentary candidates to show their support for animal welfare ahead of the general election in May.

Data on whether MPs have signed motions relating to animal issues can be obtained by searching by names or postcodes. Constituents are encouraged to contact their MP directly through the site to ask him or her to support key animal welfare issues.

Let's hope they do the same for the devolved Parliaments in 2016.
