Subject:              Protecting consumers from cloned meat

As early as the end of 2013 it could be predicted that there would be a ban on the marketing of cloned meat and the rearing of cloned animals for food. At that time voices were already being raised to point out the shortcomings of this approach. In view of the recent debate on banning the production and marketing of cloned meat, we have the following questions:

1.              Does the Commission take the view that action is needed to include the progeny of cloned animals in any ban on the marketing of cloned meat?

2.              What approach is being taken to ensure that free trade agreements, such as TTIP in particular, do not allow cloned meat to reach the European market?
