UK will not give up environmental or animal standards after Brexit - Gove

BIRMINGHAM, England, Sept 30 (Reuters) - The United Kingdom will not give up its high environmental or animal protection standards protections to win trade deals after Brexit, environment minister Michael Gove said on Sunday.

Speaking at an event on the fringes of the annual Conservative Party conference, Gove said it was an advantage for the United Kingdom to be known for quality food products and the government would announce a food strategy later this year.
