- Supporting the introduction of new legislation to regulate the sale of pet animals online to ensure that animals are protected.
- Introduce new legislation to fully ban the keeping of primates as pets.
- Introduce an online harms regulator with the power to require social media providers to ensure that animal cruelty content is not shared on their platforms.
- Strengthen legislation against illegal puppy imports in order to end the exploitation of legislative loopholes by criminal gangs.
- Demand that future trade deals seek to strengthen rather than weaken animal welfare legislation.
