Parliamentary questions
20 December 2013
E-012349/2013
Answer given by Mr Borg on behalf of the Commission

Applying the rules of subsidiarity, the Commission does not keep or monitor data on the rat populations in the Member States.

For the same reason,the Commission for the moment does not intend to implement special measures to control the risk related to disease that can be transmitted by rats.

EU animal welfare legislation does not cover wild rats.
