Jean Lambert London's Green MEP

Issue: Farmed Animals

Live Animal Transport

Jean opposes live exports of farm animals from the UK, and supports calls for the EU to reduce the number of hours animals can be transported for.

CCTV in slaughterhouses

Jean has called for all slaughterhouses in the UK and across the EU to have mandatory CCTV cameras, following revelations by Animal Aid of shocking cruelty and brutality in UK slaughterhouses, including those used for organic meat.

Foie Gras

Jean has been campaigning to end a loophole in EU law which means that fois gras production is exempt from animal welfare laws on force feeding.

Together with Green colleague Keith Taylor, Jean wrote to celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay after a newspaper investigation revealed that his restaurants use fois gras produced from mistreated geese.
