Party Policies

The Plaid Cymru General Election Manifesto can be read online. It contains the following pledges on animal issues:

  • Tougher sentences for those who abuse animals and an Animal Abuse Register for Wales.
  • 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.
