Parliamentary questions
19 May 2014
E-002951/2014
Answer given by Mr Borg on behalf of the Commission

This does not fall under the competence of the European Commission.

The European Commission is performing, within the framework of the EU strategy for the protection and welfare of animals 2012-2015(1), a study on the welfare of dogs and cats involved in commercial practices. In the light of this study, which is expected to be finalised by the end of 2014, the Commission will consider if it is necessary to take specific initiatives in this field with due regard to the competences conferred by the Treaty to the European Union.

(1)COM(2012) 6 final.
