Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Peter Lundgren
 Subject: Child labour

The Thai authorities have found children working on Vietnamese fishing boats fishing illegally in Thai waters. The youngest children were just 11 years old. The authorities searched 41 boats, finding 12 children. The Environment Justice Foundation says that fish caught using child labour could well end up on sale in Europe, as the EU is one of the largest importers of fish from Vietnam.

Is the Commission aware that fish caught using child labour could be on sale in Europe?

What is the Commission going to do about the fact that fish caught using child labour is being imported into Europe?
