Question for written answer E-005366-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Marlene Mizzi (S&D)

 Subject:  Animal welfare
 Answer in writing 

In spite of Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2005, live animal exports are still of a very low standard. This is particularly the case in third countries to which animals can be exported, as they suffer grave maltreatment. A solution to this cruelty as a result of export is a total ban on exports of live animals and a shift to trading in meat, obtained in local slaughterhouses. Does the Commission envisage introducing a ban on live animal exports and proposing new ways for the European Union’s farmers to do business?
