Question for written answer E-005397-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Louis Michel (ALDE)

 Subject:  Slaughter of pregnant cows
 Answer in writing 

In its reply to my question on the slaughter of pregnant cows (E-009014/2016), the Commission stated that the European Food Safety Authority would produce a scientific opinion by May 2017 concerning the slaughter of pregnant livestock and the consequences thereof with regard to animal welfare. The Commission also stated its intention to rely on this report to assess whether further steps are needed.

Has the Commission carried out such an assessment? If so, what conclusions were reached?

Does the Commission have any statistics on this practice across Europe, which would make it possible to determine the scale of this problem?
