Question for written answer E-004930-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Jørn Dohrmann (ECR)

 Subject:  Animal welfare in the Member States of the EU
 Answer in writing 

Recently, the Danish Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, Dan Jørgensen, stated that he will not harmonise all legislation relating to the environment and to animal welfare.

This would, according to the Minister, mean that Denmark would have Polish standards in the animal welfare area.

Does the Commission agree with the Danish Minister that there are major differences in the area of animal welfare in Europe?

Does the Commission agree with the Danish Minister that Poland has very poor animal welfare compared with the other EU Member States, including Denmark?

What will the Commission do with regard to this potential problem?
