 Subject:  Subsidies for cattle reared for bull-fighting
 Answer in writing 

Spanish animal protection associations are worried about the treatment afforded to cattle in Spain, especially to those reared for bull-fighting and, above all, if subsidies with money from EU taxpayers are involved. There is great awareness among EU citizens about the situation of animals and the environment.

1. Is there any distinction between subsidies for cattle that are reared for bull-fighting and cattle that are not?

2. If so, how much money is allocated to subsidise fighting bulls?

3. If no distinction is made between one kind of cattle and the other, why isn’t it?

4. Under what criteria are such subsidies granted?
