Question for written answer E-002263-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Michela Giuffrida (S&D)

 Subject:  Animal welfare needs of equids
 Answer in writing 

Directive 98/58/EC of 1998 concerning the protection of animals kept for farming purposes, which covers all such domesticated species indiscriminately, will soon be 20 years old. New scientific evidence has recently emerged demonstrating the need for animal welfare policies specific to each species.

What measures does the Commission plan to take to better cover the animal welfare needs of equids, and how would these measures be applied in practical terms?
