*DRAFT Meat Licencing Act*
It is against the law to purchase or consume meat, in the UK, without an appropriate licence.
Every citizen in the U.K., wishing to purchase or consume meat, is required, by law, to obtain an appropriate licence.
It is through a specific and supervised engagement in the act of killing an animal, that citizens will obtain their meat licence.

Statement of Aims
From the beginning of January 2012 The Meat Licence Proposal operates with the following aims:
Close the gap between product and process, especially in areas of food production and consumption.
Medium Term Aims:
Develop and produce "Licenced Products" for "the market" which will bring consumers closer to the slaughter of animals.
Build bridges between citizen and lawmaker.
Enactment of citizen-led "meat licencing law" which would compel engagement with the act of killing implicit in the consumption of meat.
03.01.2012 (Version 1.0)
Since the establishment of The Meat Licence Proposal on January 1st 2008 it has been the primary aim that a workable citizen-led meat licencing law be devised and enacted for the United Kingdom.
The fundamental premise driving this meat licencing law is a sense that people who are comfortable eating meat should be equally comfortable killing animals.
There have been several attempts at drafting such a law which does justice to our premise and the act itself must be understood as in process until such time as it is enacted as law.
