Jared joins calls for a ban on all fur imports in the UK.
"I support the Oppositions call for a ban on animal fur imports in the UK. The Government urgently needs to impose stricter regulation to improve animal welfare standards.
It is time we banned the sale of animal fur imports and I urge anyone in Sheffield Hallam who cares about this issue to continue lobbying the Government to ban fur imports. The current Government policy does not go far enough.
The Government cannot be trusted to deliver on animal welfare. We have a Prime Minister who has actively supported fox hunting, and we have seen badger culling kill record numbers of badgers under this Government. I am concerned that the Conservatives are not taking animal welfare standards seriously.
I know this is an issue which a lot of constituents care about. I will continue to pressure the Government to take action on banning fur imports."
