Question for written answer E-010234-14
to the Commission
Rule 130
Marlene Mizzi (S&D)

 Subject:  Standard welfare conditions for horses across the EU
 Answer in writing 

In many Member States, tourist attractions include horse-and-carriage city tours. Given that horses are sentient beings rather than machines, is the Commission considering the introduction of standard welfare conditions for working horses across the EU in order to regulate hours of rest and work and lay down requirements as regards better conditions, food and water consumption and other factors which impact upon the proper treatment of these horses?
