Question for written answer E-007918-14
to the Commission
Rule 130
Patrick Le Hyaric (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  EU ban on imports of dairy products and other products of animal origin from Israeli agri-food businesses in the occupied territories
 Answer in writing 

Israel’s agriculture ministry has reportedly informed agri-food businesses operating beyond the 1967 Green Line, including the Golan Heights and East Jerusalem, that they will no longer be able to export dairy products and other products of animal origin, such as eggs and poultry. The EU ban on products from occupied settlements in the West Bank will come into effect in January 2015.

1. Can the Commission provide further details about the means to be used to enforce implementation of this decision?

2. What is the total volume of Israeli exports to the EU, and where do these products come from?

3. What further steps will be taken to ensure that the ban on exports of products from settlements to the European Union is fully implemented?
