UK MPs vote that ‘animals can’t feel pain or emotion’ as part of Brexit bill

November 20, 2017 from metro.co.uk

"MPs have voted to reject a bill that recognises that animals feel pain and emotion."
"Affecting the EU Withdrawal Bill, the clause would have enshrined into UK law the recognition that animals feel pain and emotion, an admission currently covered by EU law."
"Some 80 per cent of animal welfare legislation currently comes from the EU but after March 2019 European law will no longer apply in the UK."
"While most EU law relating to animals will be automatically brought over into UK law, this will not apply to the recognition of sentience."
"During a debate in parliament the Government said animal sentience is covered by the Animal Welfare Act 2006."
Animal activists are very unhappy with this action.
