League statement on new Labour leader and shadow cabinet

Similarly, the League would like to congratulate Luke Pollard on his reappointment as Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

All three politicians have been staunch advocates of animal welfare in the past. In particular they have both supported the League’s key objective of seeing the Hunting Act strengthened ­- ensuring loopholes used by those who would continue to hunt and kill wild animals with dogs are no long allowed to get away with it.

We welcome the chance to work with the party on tightening legislation that will further protect wild animals from harm.
