The Bishop of Dover on live exports (1995)

In May the Bishop of Dover, the Rt. Rev. Richard Llewellyn, denounced the suffering involved in 'sheep going to slaughter after horrendously long journeys, with little or no policing once they arrive in Calais, and calves going for fattening as veal in very cruel conditions which we know to cause unnecessary suffering'.

The Bishop called for Britain to give a moral lead by saying that we will have no part in this cruel trade. He added that 'cruelty to animals is an offence before God'. The Bishop was quickly backed by the Bishops of Colchester and Peterborough. The Bishop of Dover also conducted a blessing for the animals as they entered the docks. He was joined in this by Rabbi Dan Cohn-Sherbok.
