MPs have chance to back new meat and dairy law

20 MPs have been given an historic opportunity to prevent food production from trashing the planet.

Lottery for laws

A Private Members’ Ballot took place in Westminster on 10 June, when hundreds of back bench MPs threw their names into a hat.

The following 20 MPs were selected – and now have a chance to drive a law of their choice through Parliament:

John McDonnell, Hayes and Harlington

Robert Flello, Stoke on Trent South

Chris White, Warwick and Leamington

Rebecca Harris, Castle Point

Greg Knight, East Yorkshire

Anna Soubry, Broxtowe

Harriett Baldwin, West Worcestershire

David Hamilton, Midlothian

Joan Walley, Stoke-on-Trent North

Sharon Hodgson, Washington and Sunderland West

Adrian Sanders, Torbay

Andrew Bridgen, North West Leicestershire

Mark Lancaster, Milton Keynes North

Jonathan Lord, Woking

Dr Thérèse Coffey, Suffolk Coastal

Lorely Burt, Solihull

Philip Hollobone, Kettering

Nigel Adams, Selby & Ainsty

Sir Paul Beresford, Mole Valley

George Eustice, Camborne & Redruth


New law for livestock

Friends of the Earth is calling on these MPs to choose a Sustainable Livestock Bill that supports planet-friendly farming.

The Bill would commit the Government to reduce the damaging impact of meat and dairy farming.

Destructive practices

Meat and dairy is responsible for a fifth of climate-changing gases.

It is also wiping out rainforests as they are being cleared to make space to grow animal feed such as soy.
