Meeting with Shadow Secretary of State for Brexit

Great meeting with Keir Starmer MP, this morning. As well as being recently appointed Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, his background as a human rights lawyer brings an important perspective to our campaign.

Contrary to one or two recent suggestions, Keir confirmed our understanding that the Human Rights Acts 1998 does indeed provide protection to vegans (with such protection being a schedule to the European Convention on Human Rights).

He also expressed his view that any Bill of Rights should provide at least as much protection as the Human Rights Act (if not more), and promised to use our concerns to help ensure that protection for vegans continues.

But we still need you to sign our petition, so that neither the government nor the opposition can forget or ignore us when the Bill is debated.

Sign our petition now.
