News that the UK Government is planning to repeal animal welfare codes because they are more demanding than the systems used by some other countries (http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2016/mar/25/government-planning-to-repeal-animal-welfare-codes) and might make things a tad more expensive for UK exporters.
