Henry Smith MP has hailed the contribution of The Body Shop in securing nearly six million signatures for the Forever Against Animal Testing campaign and has visited their store in Crawley town centre to sign the petition himself.

The campaign is run in conjunction with Cruelty Free International, and seeks to reach eight million signatures in support of a worldwide ban on animal testing for cosmetics products, to be presented to the United Nations later this year.

Henry said:

“‪My thanks to Body Shop staff in Crawley for helping gather near to six million signatures worldwide for the Forever Against Animal Testing campaign!

“As one of Sussex’s most well-known and ethical companies we can be proud of our local connection to such a worthy cause.

“Earlier this year I was delighted to host Cruelty Free International for a parliamentary event seeking to raise further awareness about this important issue. I’m grateful for their continued efforts and for the campaigning of Crawley residents who are passionate about animal welfare.”

Henry Smith took part in an adjournment debate yesterday evening (13 June) in the House of Commons on a proposed foie gras import ban. Although the production of foie gras in the UK is banned, Henry is calling for an end to imports of it which, he says, is ‘only possible once the UK has left the EU’s single market.’

“I want to wish the best of luck to Gareth Southgate – who famously grew up in our town – and his team. Come on England!

“I remember being at a National Citizen Service graduation ceremony just a few days before Gareth was appointed permanent England manager – who knows what our town’s next generation will go on to achieve?”

England’s World Cup campaign kicks off against Tunisia on Monday, 18 June, at 7pm BST.

The England manager attended Pound Hill Junior and Hazelwick Schools, and married at Worth Church. He played 57 times for England, and in 2014 cited a number of his teachers at Pound Hill and Hazelwick as being a driving force on him taking up football.
