Survey of GB public’s opinions on proposed changes to meat quality regulations following Brexit
  • More than four fifths (81%) of the British public are worried about meat quality standards being relaxed by ministers in pursuit of trade deals with the US and the rest of the world
  • Fewer than one in eight people (12%) say a relaxation of quality standards as a result of post-Brexit trade deals would give them no cause for concern
  • Over half (52%) believe the government regulations for meat quality standards should be tightened up following the UK’s departure from the EU
  • More than four fifths of the British public (85%) believe it should be compulsory for meat safety and slaughterhouse standards to be assessed by independent inspectors
  • Just 9% of the public think inspections by private firms are sufficient, while 8% believe slaughterhouses should be able to regulate themselves
