Friday 18 March 2011 (7 years 2 months 4 days ago)
MPs have now signed an Early Day Motion in support of the pig industry. It says:

"That this House notes that there is a growing crisis in the UK pig industry with soaring feed prices causing significant rises in production costs; further notes that UK producers are now losing a crippling average of £21 on every pig produced; further notes that UK producers observe some of the highest standards of animal welfare in the world as demonstrated by their commitment to the Red Tractor scheme; further notes that supermarkets and processors continue to report large profits while pig farmers are being forced out of business; recognises that if this is allowed to continue it will have devastating effects on jobs in rural communities; and calls on the supermarkets and processors to support high levels of animal welfare and pay UK farmers a fair price for their pigs."
