A clutch of high profile restaurants have backed calls for the law to be changed so that dairy and beef farmers are forced to improve welfare standards and the public are encouraged to eat less meat. The establishments - six of which are in the Good Food Guide 2011's top 10 restaurants - are backing a Private Members' Bill proposed by MP Rob Flello which is due to come before Parliament today. At the moment most livestock and dairy farms feed animals soy from South America that environmentalists fear is destroying the rainforest. The Sustainable Livestock Bill would reform subsidies so that farmers who graze animals outside and grow their own feed are rewarded, rather than factory farms that source their feed from abroad. It will also promote a more vegetarian diet by educating children to eat less meat and providing less meat in schools, hospitals and prisons. The proposals are being backed by Raymond Blanc's Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Oxfordshire, L'Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria, Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Rock, Cornwall, Restaurant Sat Bains in Nottingham and Pied-a-Terre and The Square in London.
