Question for written answer E-002406-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
João Ferreira (GUE/NGL)

 Subject:  Sale of land acquired with public funding for wildlife conservation purposes
 Answer in writing 

The European Union has in the past provided funding for the purchase of land by non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in a bid to conserve nature more effectively in line with national and European legislation, with particular regard for protected species and habitats.

In view of this, can the Commission say what terms must be respected regarding the sale of such land, indicating whether or not this would even be admissible (since it would mean that the land purchased with public funding would no longer be used for its originally intended purpose of wildlife conservation). If this in fact admissible, what conditions apply?

Has the Commission to date received any complaints in this connection? If so, can it indicate: what view was taken of the complaints and on the basis of what considerations?
