In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and the government’s measures in relation to social distancing, you will understand that we have had to cancel the seminar on Christianity and Farmed Animal Welfare on 30th April. We would like to invite you to take part in an online discussion instead on that day, which will allow us to hear your views and get your feedback on our policy framework. If you would be interested in participating in this event, please email Dr Margaret Adam to let us know and we will be in touch with further details.
