"We have succeeded in getting the sow crate phased out.
Now we must get rid of the battery hen cage.
It is intolerable and a blot of our society that millions of hens are imprisoned in cages where they are continuously stressed and cannot even stretch their wings.
We cannot allow this cruelty to continue.
We have a duty to protect all animals and ensure they do not suffer in this way.
We can end this cruelty by demanding that the government phase out the battery hen cage."
Former Green Party MP and animal welfare advocate
