I have been contacted by many of my constituents in Harlow about the vote on an amendment to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, relating to the EU legislation on the protection of animals and their nature as sentient beings.

A vote against the amendment was not a vote against animal welfare or the idea that animals are sentient beings. It is a complete misrepresentation and completely inaccurate.

I am voting against every amendment to the EU (Withdrawal) Bill to represent the views of my constituents, 68% of whom voted to leave the EU, and to ensure the smooth progression of the Bill and Brexit.

The UK is a world-leader in animal welfare legislation and will continue to strengthen the legislation on leaving the EU. The EU law in question has not delivered the progress that we want to see and it has failed to prevent procedures across the EU which are cruel and painful to animals.

If you'd like to read my full response on this issue, the letter is attached.

On Tuesday I spoke to BBC Essex about the proposed £40 billion EU divorce bill - it's a bananas idea to spend that money on the EU rather than to protect our vital public services.
