Mike Pledges Support for Circus Animal Ban

Mike Weatherley

Mike has today pledged his support for a ban in the shortest possible time-frame for wild animals in circuses.

Since his election, Mike has consistently voted in favour of animal rights and has supported a number of campaigns for better treatment of animals in the UK. Mike wanted to put his support for ending cruelty to animals on record in case the issue did not end with a vote in Parliament this evening.

Commenting, Mike said: “My record on animal rights speaks for itself and I am determined to put on record for the residents of Hove and Portslade that the use of wild animals in circuses is totally unacceptable. Just as I have consistently campaigned for hunting to be banned, I wish to place on record now a pledge to vote for the use of animals in circuses to be outlawed also.”
