Nicholson hits at proposed Directive on animal welfare

In an article in the Farming life, it has been reported that MEP Jim Nicholson opposes a proposed Directive on animal welfare that he describes as 'red tape': "I totally support the highest standards of animal welfare but once again this is the type of Directive that we will implement in full while others will pay lip service to it. As a result it will do nothing for animal welfare."
