Stop the Baby Trade

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Local MP Meg Munn recently attended a meeting in Westminster to show her support for the ‘Stop the Baby Trade’ campaign designed to end the UK’s role in the cruel trade in wild-caught primates for research. She saw the campaign’s video, produced by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV), which highlighted this brutal trade.


Meg supports the BUAV’s call to the Government to disassociate itself from this cruel trade and ban the use of primates who are the offspring of wild-caught parents, as well as those from facilities which still trap wild primates for breeding purposes. There has been a ban on the import of wild-caught primates since 1997, but there is no such ban on their offspring.   


Meg Munn MP said:  


“I want to show my support for this campaign. I hope that the Government will hear the calls of the BUAV’s ‘Stop the Baby Trade’ campaign and end the UK’s role in this brutal trade.”


BUAV’s Chief Executive, Michelle Thew, said:


“We are delighted that Meg Munn MP attended our Parliamentary event and very pleased to receive her support on this important animal welfare issue. The UK Government must dissociate itself from this cruel and brutal trade once and for all.”
