“In the UK, we have built a very special market for food based on provenance with particular attention to food safety and animal welfare standards and we will not jeopardise that through trade deals in the future.”
Secretary of State for the Environment, Food & Rural Affairs
The Rt Hon George Eustice MP
Environment And Animal Welfare -- 11 May - 12 July
CPF's latest paper explores one of the major aspects of the national agenda - the environment and animal welfare.
Now that we have left the European Union, we can take full responsibility for how we protect our environment and deliver on our commitment to leave it in a better state than we found it. As we embark on our future as a sovereign, independent nation, we will not only protect but enhance environmental standards, protecting it for generations to come and cementing our status as a world leader on the environment.
A summary of responses to this discussion paper will be sent to the Prime Minister’s Policy Unit, Party Chairman and CPF Chairman within a month of the closing date for submissions (12th July). We look forward to hearing your ideas as, together, we continue to unleash the country’s potential.
How To Meet Online During The Lockdown
We continue to live through peculiar times. Even if we ourselves remain healthy, most of us will know people who have had coronavirus - including CPF Group Coordinators and members - and, sadly, many of us know people who would otherwise almost certainly have still been alive today, were it not for the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic and the public lockdown.
If your local CPF Group hasn’t yet tried meeting online via video-conference software, like Zoom, let other groups’ experience encourage you to give it a try:
“Zoom forums actually work – much to everyone’s surprise!” (Shrewsbury & Atcham CPF)
“This was our first meeting on Zoom (we usually meet in a side room of a convivial local pub). It went very well – better than we expected. Everyone spoke up and our discussion was lively.” (Bexhill & Battle CPF)
